Episode 3
21 March 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Coleman (Fiona Shaw) tells Alison that her husband was an habitual liar. He was sacked from the intelligence services as he embellished his translations.

Maybe Alison could not bear to believe her, especially as other of Alex's wife's pop out from nowhere with a child in tow.

Karim remains a true friend to Alex to the very end, always looking for some kind of excuse for his behaviour. Telling Alison that the security services were looking for any reason to get rid of him.

The third episode cannot shed much light on Alex, he remains an enigma. Someone who embellished his own persona.

Ruth Wilson gives a spirited performance as Alison her real life ancestor. However the show's portrayal of Alex as some kind of flawed patriot rang hollow to me.
