Just watched the entire series in one sitting. I got gripped from episode one. The sequence with the vest in the last episode was as tense as anything I've watched on TV.

Killing Eve is excellent - much better than The Bodyguard.

Yes mate, enjoyed it but think it was a bit long winded in parts, seemed to drag out, but in fairness I think most drama's do.

they over played the bomb defusing scene in the last episode, AND....... he would not have taken the cover off with a metal screwdriver.... at that stage there was no clue if there was a magnetic trip switch of some sort inside

And you too Swannie ?
Yes, finished it now 64. Very good, especially the bit where he woke up wearing something he didn't expect. The only thing for me though is that I'm not really a Keely Hawes fan, so I'm always thinking that someone else would have been better in that role. I don't find her very believable....unfortunately

I'm only watching to find out what's happened, not overly enjoying it, too long winded.

I think 'Strangers' has got better as the series has progressed

I think it's ran at one level, flat, but I am intrigued.

'The Bodyguard' is still my favourite of the three series covered on this topic, nearly as good as 'The Night Manager' imo !
