Two-part spy drama shit with Michael Gambon, just started.
Might be good. Might just be a bit UK Wallander/Spooks/BBC.
I can't help but ask the obvious though; how did she know which side she was working for?
Flawed, as you sort of expect, and Gambom was a bit wasted, but well worth watching.
In a way, Eva was the perfect spy.
Great concept, I thought: 'Restless'.
according to the xmas radio times spread on it
enjoyed it though kept thinking eva was that billie woman that used to be married to chris evans
but I couldn't work out:
1)why she would even have come back to Britain, albeit under a new identity - Romer and the Russians would definitely have been able to track her down.
2)why she decided to get her daughter involved at that point. No one was actually out to kill her, it seemed, and so she was taking a big risk to expose her family in that way.
3)was it just a co-incidence that the daughter's ex-partner appeared from Germany then?
I dunno, it might have been explained better in the book.
Anyone care to explain why he was even in it?
what did he do/say/add?
didn't get that bit at all.
I guess without him there would have been no son (which gave the mother another reason to be worried for her daughter), and without the background in Germany there wouldn't have been a plausible explanation for the daughter knowing all about the country, but I can only think that his reappearance was a red herring, as was the mention of the Baider-Meinhof groups.
I dunno, perhaps the book explains it better.
Also, who did the daughter's professor phone after she left?
and I remember thinking "my my, that's a strikingly attractive woman".
She does look a bit like Billie, as someone mentioned above, but there was someone else I thought she looked like and it was bugging me.
Watching this, I realised it was Kevin Eldon. Eek.
if i met a guy that looked like her then i would ruin him
which is excellent too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0lS2oXyn30
