Review

This freewheeling spy saga has a mood like nothing else. Tonight, the fact the narrative often has a heightened dream-like quality goes into overdrive as Martin (Jonas Nay) inadvertently takes some mushrooms at the home of the couple whose group he is meant to be infiltrating on behalf of US intelligence. 

Suddenly we see a very different Martin, not the usual wary operator but full of love and big thoughts and flashbacks to memories from earlier series. There’s a great scene where he tries to come clean to his son’s lovely teacher, but ends up sounding unhinged as he explains: “Then my aunt poisoned me and took me to the West – but I prevented a nuclear war…”
