    1963. England is about to explode. An ageing hack defects to Russia. A cabinet minister resigns. A young woman takes an overdose. A Harley Street physician blows out his brains. Commander Troy investigates. But what with the sex and the drugs, he finds that he's up to his neck in the mess, personally and professionally. The damn thing might blow up in his face, and the English can be so unforgiving of a good scandal.

    BORING

    This production was so dry and witless that I gave up after about two hours. The plot was hard to follow and the characters were hard to care about.

    A new breed of gangster appears and the battle for the East End begins. Chief Superintendent Frederick Troy is quite literally caught in the crossfire, when he is hit by the blast from a car bomb.

    Classy

    Witty, interesting, dramatic, well-developed plot and a classy performance by Lewis Hancock. I loved it.
