Without wanting to tell the whole story, the thriller sets up a blinding climax with one of the best final twists ever seen in a TV thriller. The series is well-acted with bravura performances by the leads Ray Lonnen and Derek Thompson who are well supported by Geoffrey Chater and Benjamin Whitrow. The DVD has one [unexpected] extra - an interview with Ray Lonnen which lasts around 20 minutes who has gives an interesting insight into the makling of the show.
An excellent series is a must-buy for those who have a serious interest in classic TV drama and who can forget the haunting theme tune provided by Clannad?
I remember being deeply moved by it at the time, especially by the rather shocking ending. Its treatment of "the troubles" in Northern Ireland was perhaps the most sophisticated and even-handed that had been seen in a drama at that time, though it may have dated a little now.
The theme tune was by Clannad and its success sparked off their international success.
Seymour's first novel was HARRY'S GAME, sombre, melancholy and tragic. The IRA send a man to London to assassinate the Secretary of State for Social Services, Henry Danby, M.P. ... on his own doorstep in Belgrave Square, in front of his wife and children. This is viewed as a 'direct attack' on Her Majesty's Government, and the PM - with clenched fists - instructs 'maximum effort' from his cautious RUC Chief Constable and the sceptical GOC Northern Ireland, no stone to be left unturned in the pursuit of this killer.Read more ›
A previous writer mentioned that this was filmed in Leeds. Not all of it - at the end, the wounded IRA man runs up the Crumlin Road at Ardoyne, past the barricades near Flax Street (I grew up in the street directly opposite). And when Harry jumps out, he's opposite the unmistakable wall of Holy Cross RC church which stands at the junction of the Crumlin and Woodvale Roads. And the hospital really was the Belfast Mater. Funny to see it all again.
[ADDENDUM June 2011: I just noticed that Amazon has the title of the film wrong: Harry's Game, it should be, not "Games"]
