This really was a big story back when the real life events happened, it's a terrific adaptation, it's a good mix of funny and serious, with a tremendous cast.
It starts off in somewhat light hearted fashion, but as the story gets more serious, the tone also begins to change too, it becomes pretty serious.
It's fascinating to think how plane spotters could land up in so much trouble, but reverse it and imagine a a group of Greek geeks turning up at Heathrow and filming.
A friend of mine is a plane spotter, and takes it very seriously, I've never understood the appeal, and he tried to explain it years ago, it didn't seem that it was actually about the planes themselves.
I imagine this could have led to a bit of trouble between Greece and The UK.
Terrific cast, Benton and Sharpe are both amazing. 9/10.
