A SHOCK conclusion.
7 April 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Main calls in old favours, and pulls the rug from under Hillmore's feet, the thirst for the top job, insatiable. Martin needs Erik's help as Evans literally goes in for the kill. He returns to England, knowing a lot more, and when he gets too close, he's taken for questioning, and learns the true events from Hillmore.

I am sure people (should they remember this series) will remember the last episode, and the shocking conclusion in particular. I will say no more, but it wasn't the usual way that the BBC rounded off a TV drama, ten out of ten for doing something a bit different.

Exceptionally well acted, Tom Wilkinson is fantastic, but to me it's very much Peter Eyre who steals the show with his devious, cool performance, he's fantastic. A note for Michael Aldridge too, he's been very good throughout.

9/10 deserved for the ending.
