Danny is a gregarious, hedonistic romantic who gets drawn into the dangerous world of British espionage in this contemporary, emotional thriller. He falls for the anti-social but enigmatic Alex, both from opposite worlds, and they soon realise they’re perfect for each other. But when Alex suddenly disappears, Danny is utterly ill-equipped to take on his complex and codified world. Young, innocent and adrift he needs to decide whether he’s prepared to fight for the truth?

I had high hopes for this series. A stellar cast: Legendary veterans actors Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, and Harriet Walters, with a rising star, Ben Whishaw, who is considered by many to be one of the best of his generation, a brilliant actor, and the writing was so veiled that it lead you to believe it was working its way to a complex but highly intelligent ending, In that anticipation, I was giving episodes 8s (good) and 9s (great), but then the resolution came, and it was all so farfetched that it toppled the series to a 6 (fair). What a shame, and what a waste of talent and time.

Great performances and direction but the material just isn't there. It starts off so strong but then just meanders on, not really making any sense for 4 more hours. A shame. More time in the writers room next time please.
