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

started out well...
12 May 2016 | by imizrahi2002See all my reviews

but things started happening in the fourth episode that seemed implausible. not in the sense that someone grows wings and flies implausible... but even with the little we know of a certain character, they make a decision that seemed HIGHly unlikely. not for someone who's achieved their position in that sort of work. but that was the second seemingly 'off' move for a character. one had dire consequences, the other was ridiculously foolish, most things considered, as to context... i don't like spoilers. and i don't care to be more specific than the vagaries i've already mentioned... it's well played and photographed. some beautiful landscapes. some exotic... but the plot seems amateurishly thought out/clichéd in certain parts of the infrastructure...which, for me, weakened it as a whole...
