Storyline

An Englishman, Jonathan Pine (played by Tom Hiddleston), is working as the night manager of a Cairo hotel. He gets involved with a local woman who is the girlfriend of a local gangster. Through her relationship with the gangster she has acquired information linking illegal international arms sales with Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie), an English billionaire. She is soon found dead, murdered due to her having this information. Fearing for his own life, Pine flees, ending up working at a remote hotel in Switzerland. Four years pass, and then Roper visits the Swiss hotel. This rekindles Pines thirst for revenge, and he is enlisted by British Intelligence to spy on Roper. What follows is a very dangerous game of intrigue and deception. Written by grantss

Fabulous
28 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

I thought this was absolutely wonderful, and was especially impressed by Tom Hiddleston (such a superb, beautiful actor) and Hugh Laurie (brilliant in the 'evil role'). One thing: I did think that a pregnant Olivia Coleman was a bit of an oddity in the series, since I don't find it plausible that a spy would put herself in a massively dangerous situation when heavily pregnant.

The design of the entire thing was beautiful – I don't know where the BBC managed to find the budget to film in such wonderful locations. The initial visuals to each episode are probably the best I've ever seen – so much style and beauty.

Gorgeous, fascinating and different from the ordinary run of thrillers. Looking at something like this makes one realize how much better a lot of TV (like this and the Scandi dramas) is than most of today's churned-out films for the masses.
