Some people discover their God-given mission late in life. I'm glad I'm still young enough to take up my staff and go walking among hills and dales to spread the word: KEEP AWAY FROM THIS TRAIN-WRECK OF A SCRIPT!!!!!
I really enjoy British TV dramas and am often surprised when discovering relatively unknown gems. The hype around the "Five days" series, and the great cast of actors, had me try this. It's a wreck, a complete wreck.
And that's quite an achivement for the screenwriter, given that the actors are for the most part excellent, their characters often well-defined. But the narrative itself is awful. Not only is it very inconclusive ( many red herrings abound and get you nowhere)but in the end, the explanation for what happened is such a ludicrous mish-mash of unlikely coincidences, ridiculous psychological explanations, etc etc... that should you try this, you'd find yourself, like me and quite a few others viewers it seems, wondering: how did anyone at BBC vet this script?????
