fantastic
10 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

I felt compelled to put pen to paper myself after watching this thoroughly enjoyable drama, I would say by far the best thing on ITV in 2011 Purefoy is at his best with a great support cast in Miles, Diveney, Parker and Dunning. Love to see more of this in the future, the writing is from Anthony Horowitz known for Foyles War, Murder in Mind, Midsommer Murders and The Gift. In the beginning you see only success from Travers lifestyle but it soon unravels into a web of intrigue, not everything is what it seems, flashbacks are used to build a powerful story of a man with a secret in his past, will it catch up with him?
