Plot Summary | Add Synopsis


Did You Know?


When the Handler shows Number Five her trophies, she produces a Walther PPK pistol claiming it is the exact same pistol that Adolf Hitler used to commit suicide. Not only is this accurate, as it was the exact model Hitler used, but also the weapon in question did disappear and its whereabouts are a mystery to this day. See more »

If there have been any doubts that this series is brilliant, then "The Day that wasn't" removed them all. After the first five episodes allowed us to get to know the siblings, the series gathers pace with episode six.

Although all of the actors work perfectly together (especially in some two-party groupings), in my opinion Robert Sheehan and Aidan Gallagher stand out (just a bit more).

Robert Sheehan shows more depth than I'd have expected for his role as Klaus and Aidan Gallagher is the first non-annoying teenager I've seen in ages in front of a camera. He's perfect and absolutely believable.
