Trivia

Gene (Philip Glenister) says, "all talk and no trousers," mixing the northern expression, "all mouth and trousers" which means to engage in empty boastful talk but with no real substance to back it up, with the expression, "all talk and no action," which means the same thing. See more »

Another solid episode
8 August 2015 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

As with episode 1, I'd say this is a solid enough episode, not one that was massively memorable, more relationship building with her mum, bombs, Thatcherism, there was quite a lot going on in this episode, all set to the wedding of Charles and Diana. It was great to see the team sat watching it, i'm sure most people at the time stopped what they were doing to watch it. Rupert Graves is excellent as handsome 80's yuppie thatcherite Danny Moore, he and Alex have some great scenes, notably in the car with the ticking device, cool car by the way. Good to see Stephen Wight, a tremendous actor, the closing scenes at the street party are fantastic too.
