This is a fascinating series set in a dystopian Britain. Very hard hitting as secret police and invasive big brother style take control of Britain. Woodward stars as a journalist , a thorn in the side of a very nasty regime. It's unsettling to see Britain portrayed in this show . Many ideas from The Prisoner, but instead of a contained village , this fascistic drama played out in Britain as a whole. The opening episode has Woodward's Kyle engaged in an illegal Emigration smuggling operation, a great introduction to a series worth giving a go.
