Storyline

Samuel is tasked by Mr Field to find out the names of those attending the Shaw's latest party. After the party, Mr Field and Denning are unhappy with Samuel's lack of detail. Samuel leaves the meeting, not wanting their business if it means being blackmailed. Courtney breaks it to Samuel that the company is close to bankruptcy. They must acquire more orders in the next few weeks. Knowing he needs the MI5 order, Samuel goes back to Mr Field's office and is tasked by him to photograph all the guests at the Shaw's upcoming fishing trip. Clutching at straws, Kathleen visits Sacha's school to see if she can glean any clues about her son Anthony's disappearance. Samuel and Miriam receive an anonymous letter, explaining that Hannah did not meet the Queen, and has been skipping many of the parties and balls. When they confront her, Hannah runs to stay with Esther. Once there, two of Esther's friends Joel and Kevin, arrive with a gramophone. Kevin and Esther are evidently an item. Samuel and ...

Goofs

The camera used by Samuel is clearly a rangefinder design which has a separate "viewfinder" to the side of the main lens for framing and rough focusing but we repeatedly see "through the lens" shots as if the camera being used were a single lens reflex (SLR) camera (which uses a mirror and a prism to allow framing and focusing directly through the main lens.) We even see the image in the "viewfinder" being zoomed as if by the main lens, when what Samuel would see using a rangefinder camera would be a fixed focal length image regardless of the actual focal length of the main lens.

He isn't much of a spy.
9 August 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

First of all, I am loving how it's all merging into one, that there isn't a break in the flow between episodes.

Petrukhin is given a camera, and tasked with taken photos of any guests of the Shaws. Samuel blindly follows his instructions, and of course is hopeful of an order, which could help save his business. I did find it a little surreal, nobody taking exception to being snapped by Samuel.

The story really does open up towards the end, with the pacing and intensity cranked up. We are left wondering exactly who is up to what.
