Needs some background explanation
6 January 2020 | by mjierossallSee all my reviews

I lived through the time of the Profumo scandal, and my father was a journalist on the Daily Mirror. Even so, I would have to do some research to name some of the incidental political figures and their roles. None of the Cold War paranoia comes across, which could explain why the mere suspicion of Christine Keeler having relationships with the Minister of War and the military attaché of the Soviet Embassy caused hysteria in the corridors of power and the media. On top of that was the British government's fear of the reaction in Washington to this scandal, since the US government was already writing off the British government and intelligence establishment as a load of incompetent chinless wonders. Christine Keeler herself, if she was as ignorant of events as she is portrayed, is not the person best placed to make the situation understandable. Six hours of bewilderment will be hard to keep up with, however well acted. It's also likely to bewilder the audience, and this production lacks the dramatic tension to keep them involved.
