Starring Brian Cox, "The Game" is a 1970s Cold War spy thriller set in the world of espionage. It tells the story of the invisible war fought by MI5 as it battles to protect the nation from the threats of the Cold War.
Although set in 1970s London, the show was almost entirely shot in Birmingham. The MI5 headquarters building (both interiors and exteriors). was the recently closed Birmingham Central Library, a much criticised and largely unloved example of 1970s 'brutalist' architecture, which has now (as of 2016), been completely demolished as part of a major city redevelopment scheme.

I thought this series was a great show and want to know when or if you are making another. I enjoyed watching how the characters were built and unfolded and trying to work out who was what (baddie or goodie) in the characters. Also enjoyed the slower pace of the story as opposed to one and a half hour movies that squeeze as much out of the time as possible without portraying the 'real life' pace and how in 'real life' it is the bringing together of lots of small pieces of information that result in collating the whole picture/story.
Hope you make another one.
