Meet Sam. A spy. A hunter. And herself hunted by an enemy more ruthless and determined than any she's ever known. Sam has been running from her past her entire life but when she returns to Byzantium, the organisation that employs her, and begins to pursue her pursuer, she will discover the only way to escape that past... is to confront it. This is the story of a spy with a bull's eye on her back, a human target unable to trust anyone at any time, even the man she loves. She is, quite literally, running for her life. Hunted is a smart, complex and contemporary spy series. Written by
Sam is identified as having served in the Special Reconnaissance Regiment. The SRR is part of the UK Special Forces and was formed in 2005 to specialise in military surveillance and intelligence gathering. However at the time this programme was made women could only serve in support roles in the SRR, not as frontline soldiers See more »
Solid series for lovers of Spooks and similar series of the genre. A slow build up of so many unanswered questions over the previous 7 episodes make the final episode (8) a "must see" - so many unanswered questions.
However, I was extremely disappointed by the final episode. Perhaps 10 episodes would have been sensible. The writer/s simply lost the plot, so much so that I joined IMDb to air my view. It is hard to comprehend that the same writing team constructed the previous 7 episodes.
No spoilers, but so many questions and mysteries raised in the prior episodes is answered in episode 8 which takes place over just a few days in episode story time. Unlike Spooks and others, the outcomes were predictable, not a single twist and some important questions are left unanswered (frustrating? Yep).
E08 is simply a bombardment of answers on plot and previously unclear character backgrounds and provides far too much information to remain plausible, or for the viewer to absorb in a single episode without feeling let down. It felt like the writers were instructed to "Kill this, and make it fast!"
I sat down to watch E08 thinking "I hope this runs for another season". After it was finished I stood up thinking "What an implausible dud, so glad that's over!" If you are a fan, you will want to watch E08, if you intend watching or buying the entire series on DVD, then maybe best to save your time and cash. Episode 8 - 2/10, Series - 5/10
