Jonathan is now accepted into his entourage by Roper, who gives him a new identity as Andrew Birch though waspish Corkoran makes it clear he mistrusts him. Using his friendship with Daniel and hearing a startling revelation from disillusioned Lady Langbourne Jonathan is able to communicate information to Angela Burr, who also seeks the help of Juan Apostol, an associate of Roper whose daughter recently committed suicide. In London the permanent secretary at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and minister Geoffrey Dromgoole are sceptical of Angela's operation and unaware that one of their number is betraying facts to Roper. Whilst sleuthing in Roper's house on Mallorca Jonathan also discovers Jed's secret. Written by don @ minifie-1

When Apo and Langborne are photographed at the café, Apo is on the viewer's left; when the photos are reviewed later, he is to the viewer's right, putting the pictures 180 degrees out from the actual POV when they were taken. See more »


Lance Corkoran: [to Jonathan] Off every tree, you may freely eat, maids, serving wenches, cooks, typists, masseuses, even the ladies who comes to clip the canaries claws...
Lance Corkoran: [refers to Jed] But if you lay one hand on that precious fruit, then like the Belgians in the Congo, I'll chop it off. And I don't mean the hand.

Weak episode
28 April 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

"The Night Manager" arrives to the middle of its run and offers a middle of the road episode, not bad, but not great either. This third episode does little to advance the story, and it is not especially fast-paced.

Of course, that doesn't mean it is bad. It is just not as good as the first two episodes. The acting keeps being really good, and the scenery, direction and cinematography is good too, but the plot suffers from I-need-to-make-this-last syndrome. The hour could have been condensed in maybe half of it and it would have made the show a more engaging one.

The atmosphere is good, and the show teases us with more to come. But the classic feel becomes a little bit stale. Let's see if it improves in the second part of the mini-series.
