Storyline

A bomb, delivered in a suitcase, goes off inside the house of an Israeli attaché in West Germany. A team of Israelis seek to put an end to the increasing number of bombings, all of which are masterfully thought out by an elusive Palestinian. The Israelis identify an eccentric English actress and manage to turn her into one of their agents, with whose help she brilliantly wins the confidence of the Palestinian network until she is accepted as one of their own.

Disappointing
8 November 2018 | by MarlburianSee all my reviews

It's reassuring to read reviews here that reflect my own underwhelmed reaction to a series that had been much-heralded - and based on a Le Carre novel, no less.

I concede that the Arab-Israeli situation is not one that interests me as many others and TLDG is one of the very few Le Carre novels I haven't read. Recently I did try to watch the 1984 film but gave up during Charlie's prolonged interviews and assessment. Which is far as I got with the 2018 TV series.

Florence Pugh in the lead role was a big improvement on Diane Keaton, but just about the only sympathetic character. The others were boring, especially Michael Shannon as Kurz, who may have been following in the tradition of the understated George Smiley. But Alec Guinness and Gary Oldman conveyed the feeling that there was far more depth to the character they were portraying: Shannon is soporifically dull.

After 90 minutes I'd lost patience and so I switched off.
