Goofs

When Worricker and Margot are playing chess, the chess board is set up incorrectly. There should be a white square on the right edge of the board as they face it. The placement of the pieces appears randomly placed. See more »

Quotes

Margot Tyrrell: You know him well?
Reverend Bernard Towers: I helped him through some difficult days. When he was a student, he loved the idea of faith, the life of the church. So, someone had to point out that he didn't actually believe.
Margot Tyrrell: And that was you. And he didn't.
Reverend Bernard Towers: No. He wanted to, more than anything, but sadly that's not the same thing.

international cast, exotic locales, big production values
27 March 2014 | by meggafishSee all my reviews

international cast, exotic locales, big production values can never hide a poor story hiding behind this 3 parter. I was extremely disappointed by the moody staring between protagonists that never moved the story forward. Over and over again, I kept thinking, 'okay sociopaths run governments, but I've seen this over and over again ---and sociopaths employing psychopaths still run governments.

There was never an edge with this series; never a wake-up call. Was the point most people are whores and sellouts at the end? Or was it to give up and take what you get from public officialdom? The UK puts out superior drama to America, but the money spent on cast, locations, production values, I've come to expect more than this lame half baked story. I wasn't prepared for the Bourne Conspiracy extra-lite, but I guess that is what I got, despite expectations. BBC should send all writers, the director and producers into exile to the Sudan for two years making documentaries, such they can learn not to waste so much public money on inferior television
