Trivia

Although the series is set in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, that country was deemed too dangerous for cast and crew. Jungle and rural scenes were filmed in the KwaZulu province of South Africa and the interiors were shot in Cape Town. Filming in the former British colony of South Africa (now the Republic of South Africa) explains why the vehicles have right hand drive as in the United Kingdom. See more »

Goofs

All the vehicles are LHD and driving is on the left. They do not drive on the left in DRC but on the right. See more »

Unwelcome investigation
27 March 2019 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Three years after her husband disappeared due to a plane crash in Congo, his 'widow' discovers faint traces that he may still be alive. She flies down to Africa and starts an investigation that may be clumsy (she does not even speak French), but her stubbornness takes her through in one piece somehow. What she finds is however not what she expected, and to unknown enemies, her investigation about the plane crash is not welcome...

Well entertaining TV series, at 8 episodes neither too short to develop a certain complexity and interesting characters, nor too long to maintain suspense. I watched it in only three days because I was eager to find out how it continues, a very good sign. Familiar faces among the actors include Charles Dance ('Game of Thrones'), Alex Kingston ('Doctor Who') and of course Kate Beckinsale ('Underworld').
