Did You Know?


A more correct version of the plot should have focused on the number of German aeronautical engineers that came to work in the U.K., either willingly or taken using T-Force as shown in this series, and included engineers such as Dietrich Küchemann, Johanna Weber and Hans Multhopp. Multhopp did in fact design a supersonic jet aircraft for the British at the RAE - however, as soon as it reached the prototype stage, Multhopp was taken of his own project, as he was classed as an 'enemy alien' working in Britain.

This is so awful. I have kept watching in the hope it would improve but have totally lost interest. First of all I was thrown by the Game of Thrones actor and Bates Motel actor appearing. Kept wondering whether I was in the wrong programme. I was also watching Philip Glenister in another programme running just before this. Confused.com.

The episodes are one long slog after another and not at all convincing. Terrible accents and acting from what are usually good actors. But then again with no decent material can you really blame them?

No idea why Poliakoff has any sort of reputation to be honest. I have seen nothing of his to write home about but here we are again with a lavish but drawn out boring and badly written production.

There is nothing that seems right about it.
