Episode 2
25 November 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

After an underwhelming opening episode, the second episode seemed to have flowed better but it does mean that this serial is actually getting anywhere.

Still we have Alfred Molina as the mysterious Mr Lindsay-Jones to steal the show as he returns to a dilapidated stately home and reminiscences about a party he attended there with his wife before the war. Lindsay-Jones was something big in the foreign office and tells Callum Ferguson he knows people who could had stopped the war from ever starting. This was the best scene of episode two.

The Connington Hotel also holds mysteries. Who else has their hotel rooms bugged? Is Callum's room being bugged?

Callum has plans to make the German scientist Dieter Koehler come over to the British side by using Kathy from the War Crimes Units but at the end he realises that he and his daughter has nowhere to go. Not back to Germany that just leaves him with the choice of the Americans or the Russians and he lets him leave the hotel with Lotte. The gambit pays off as they later return but who is this mysterious German who comes to Lotte's room, no wonder she would rather run off with Callum's wayward brother for a nice cup of hot chocolate.

It certainly is going at a leisurely pace and we have not seen outlines of some characters such as the big band singer, Eva.
