I don't know what my fellow reviewers have been watching, but the ninety minute episode that concluded this series off, was I thought incredible. An episode that has broken all records, with an enormous audience, and no wonder, there is no way on Earth people would have watched in such high numbers if this wasn't top class viewing.

More tension then anything I've seen since probably Line of Duty Series three, I thought it was scintillating viewing. Richard Madden has been fantastic throughout, he peaks in this episode for me, delivering a truly powerhouse performance, Gina McKee was terrific also. It's been full of surprises the whole way through, that trend definitely continued here, so much going on.

The filming was incredible, I loved the location work, have it a big production feel. Jed Mercurio may not be John le Carre, but he isn't half writing some incredible stuff. He always manages to deliver the most unexpected twists, I must have imagined every possible outcome, bar the actual one, incredibly written and delivered.

Explosive drama. 10/10
