    Enjoyed the paranoia and intrigue and the lead was well played by Tuppence Middleton.

    Did we ever know how she got that bump to her head...

    The drama attracted an average of 6.7m viewers

    Overall I thought this was pretty good and I quite like one offs where you don't have to invest months or years in them. I liked the lead girl Tuppence in it but then I liked her in black mirror the other week too, hopefully we'll be seeing more of her

    I assumed it was when she fell down that cliff (that she thought was a better option than having to walk past Keeley Hawes) :rolleyes:


    Attempted to watch this today. Gave up halfway through & ended up fast-forwarding through the rest. Hated every single smug, irritating character in it & wanted to punch them all repeatedly. (& judging by the final scene, Tuppence hadn't learned anything from her experience & was still incredibly smug & irritating)

    I was hoping WWII would break out early & they'd all get shot.

    :thumbsdow

    The 1979 Hammer version was quite poor, but at least that had Cybil Shepherd & Elliot Gould in it, & some half decent comic relief from Arthur Lowe & Ian Carmichael.

    Tuppence Middleton's very attractive though. I'll give her that. ;)

    I watched it over two sittings as nothing about it engaged me that much to keep it on for it's duration . As you say there wasn't a single character to like.

    Maybe it's an attempt to show the upper class in their true colours at that time. You wouldn't get that now would we? We're all in it together. So say the Millionare cabinet.
