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.
