Have been watching. It was good! Am looking forward to the conclusion tomorrow. Anyone else?

WipsGlitter Thu 27-Dec-12 22:32:25

Me too. Slightly lost tho; what were they doing? Planting fake media stories?

Sorry but we thought it was a bit pants. Nice to look at but nothing really happened.

MrsJREwing Thu 27-Dec-12 22:35:13

Who is the actor playing Roma?

I am enjoying this, looking forward to the conclusion.

WipsGlitter Thu 27-Dec-12 22:43:04

Rufus Sewell

EvaLongoria Thu 27-Dec-12 22:45:07

I enjoyed it as well. Can't wait for the conclusion.

Rufus Sewell is HOT! grin

MrsJREwing Fri 28-Dec-12 00:38:31

I thought Rufus looked like Adam Ant grin

Oh RS was the baddie in A Knights Tale, he's good looking. I just felt he had too much make up on, but maybe that's his eyes.

I found it all got a bit boring. Have set part 2 to record though.

MrsJREwing Fri 28-Dec-12 01:07:59

He is the baddie ex bf of Kate in The holiday, have it on now.

I loved it, but have read and loved the book also. I agree, Rufus Sewell is extremely hot!

Lady Mary as a hippy. Was wondering throughout where her ds was while she was diving into her mother's spy past.

KnockMeDown Fri 28-Dec-12 21:24:54

Well, never mind the incomprehensible plot, that red and white dress is gorgeous!!!

MrsJREwing Fri 28-Dec-12 22:32:33

I don't get the ending confused she let him know she knew so he killed himself and she and her daughter were still being stalked. What was with the German sperm donor Dad visit?

XBenedict Fri 28-Dec-12 22:35:36

That was brilliant! I loved the book and I thought that was a great adaptation.

The ending was the mother spending the rest of her life watching, looking over her shoulder because of the mistake she made when she sent her daughter to interview Romer.

We also v. confused.
If Romer knew she would check the map and foil the plot then he wasn't sending her to her death.
And why did she kill Alfie?
And who does she think is after her now?

MrsJREwing Fri 28-Dec-12 22:39:11

So if it wasn't Romer following the Mother then who was it?

MrsJREwing Fri 28-Dec-12 22:40:58

I thought she killed Alfie as she thought he was loyal to the traitor. I wasn't sure if she used Alfie to find out who the traitor was?

Yes - what was the German Dad all about? Red herring.
By the end I didn't care whether Sally/Eva survived or not!

v. clever to use Alfie, but she didn't need to kill the poor chap

XBenedict Fri 28-Dec-12 22:45:08

She's worried that Romer has left something in writing, before he killed himself, that will be traced back to her or her daughter as she should have told her daughter not to use her real name.

HalleLouja Fri 28-Dec-12 22:56:54

I really liked it but got completely confused.

Think the German Dad was a red herring.

I love Rufus - he was fabulous in Zen. Shame they ditched it after one series. He is lush. Better without the dodgy tache.

Naah, TooMany Rufus relied on her spotting the errors so she'd keep the map, not hand it over and get killed in incriminating circumstances. If she handed it over to dodgy clueless spy then she'd have been fine. Rufus didn't foresee her stabbing killer and getting away because... umm, something to do with guns and weapon training and that.

I am left feeling rather grin that they were meant to be dead clever spys and that - Eva was either a rubbish spy or Rufus literally f***ed her brains out as no way would a proper spy make all those half witted phone calls saying where she was and what she was doing. Or fall in love with someone so clearly untrustworthy and with an agenda, shagging him oh yes but not falling in wuv.

Wtf was her supposedly Cambridge academic daughter doing taking sooo long reading her mothers life story? Surely she would at least have skipped to the end before interviewing old Rohmer? Then the ridiculous 'face off' at the end would have been avoided ... it was enjoyable twaddle but not half as clever or sophisticated as it thought it was.

Was discussing it today's with dps, somehow we all liked it but pulled the plot to pieces:

Why did Ava suddenly become convinced that someone was going to kill her? Was this true? Was she pretending or deluded?

Why did Maurice show her the first "suicide" room? Was this just a plot device so she would recognise that his death wasn't suicide? Seemed a bit ott if so.

Why didn't she tell Romer that she recognised the suicide man?

Why did the German dad come back? Was that and the police visit just a random red herring?

Surely Ava didn't need to involve her daughter to find Romer now, she seemed like a pretty capable woman!
