Episode 1.4
4 February 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Mona has been shown to be inept finding out that sending money by bank transfer is traceable. It also causes a rift with her husband Guy who so far tries to remain stoic and gloss over any troubles by schmoozing with oily politicians to try to keep his career on track

However with the police operation to catch Danny in Pakistan a failure, Mona finds it is better to help the police to catch Danny. However Danny wants to get out as the terrorists he is with are planning their next campaign. The police realise that Danny is an important asset if he remains with the terrorists.

I think the biggest problem I have with Next of Kin is that I never for a moment believe them as a functioning or realistic family.
