All these psychosexual, world-building spy games take up the first half of the series, which I realized as I was scarfing it like popcorn reminded me of nothing so much as the first two seasons of Homeland. Don't run away!

It's another high-profile mini-series that rewards the patient, and further proof of its director's international importance.

From start to finish, it's like a very expanded episode of Mission: Impossible. And I mean that as a compliment.

You'll come for the psychological drama and the thrill of the danger that all good crime dramas promise, but you'll stay for Pugh's character.
