A Man of My Company

Series 1 - Episode 7 A Man of My Company



Some tough Americans arrive as bodyguards to a wealthy industrialist in London for a meeting. They’re working for the Pinkerton Detective Agency and their dead-eyed leader (The Sopranos’ Edoardo Ballerini) badly wants to find Pinkerton escapee Captain Homer Jackson. Captain Jackson, though, doesn’t wish to be found.

We learn more about the enigmatic Homer (Adam Rothenberg), a sexy reprobate who lives in the brothel administered by Long Susan. As a skilled pathologist he’s an invaluable right-hand man to upright DI Reid. By the end of another bloody story (be warned, there’s a teeth-gritting Reservoir Dogs moment), it looks as if Jackson’s fate is sealed.


International haulage tycoon TP Swift arrives in town to acquire an ailing shipping line, accompanied by a team of private detectives, who proceed to cut a violent swathe through the borough on a mission of vengeance. As Reid focuses on the murder of an engine inventor, Jackson and Susan's past comes back to haunt them, bringing their future in Whitechapel - and their very lives - into question. Matthew Macfadyen, Adam Rothenberg, Jerome Flynn and MyAnna Buring star.
