THE GAME......any thoughts??

I am seeing the trailer for some British Spy series called THE GAME on one of my DVDs. Has anyone seen it? Any good?

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

Haven't seen it but it sounds good from the Wikipedia entry, at least, so if I come across it I will give it a try. Points in its favour so far are "not negative" ones - not written by Moffat, Chibnall or Gatiss for starters.

(And not starring Benedict Cumberbatch, just for a change, like.)

It's okay. Not Tinker Tailor quality, but enjoyable.

Filmed in and around Birmingham, which doubled for London. Lots of the interiors were shot in the Birmingham central library, before its final destruction.
