Episode 1: Kyrie Eleison
As we rejoin East German spy Martin Rauch, he is sitting in an entirely white room – white table, white chairs – with one red telephone, on which he speaks with a woman in Moscow...before hurling the phone against a wall.
It’s the kind of heightened visual style that helped make the Deutschland trilogy (we’ve previously had 83 and 86) such a hit – Britain’s most-watched foreign- language drama, no less. But this is now the final series, and we look on as the GDR starts to collapse, seeing what that means for the often surprisingly sympathetic characters in a branch of the Stasi we have come to know well, in their wood-panelled rooms and seedy suits.
The first episode puts Martin (Jonas Nay) at the heart of events building up to the moment when the Berlin Wall falls and East Germans start fleeing to the West. He has saved his country before. Can he do so again?
