SS GB

Post your views about what's on the telly-box (not about transvestites, unless it is a programme about transvestism, and even that is borderline unless there are also ladyboys).

It was definitely flawed but I enjoyed the last episode and thought Huth and Archer made an interesting duo.

Jesus, if you thought the book was good-ish the TV drama must have been a long, LONG way past utter shite.

I read the book back in 1980/81 or so, and my memory of it is that it was good, not great. Now, his book "Bomber" is fantastic.

iirc we have had this discussion elsewhere. Nowadays authors do it all the time 'fuck, i am rolling in cash and i really cannot be arsed to write / fuck I am dead and my publishers are greedy cunts' - the result 'Not Tom Clancy' or 'Met Virginia Andrews once' authors. But before this became au courant, back in the 80's my dad sworE blind that 'Len Deighton' was two people - that one sane human being could NOT write such stylistically and qualitatively different books. About half of his books are excellent, about half are utter turgid dogwiddle. His Non-Fiction tended to all be good - Blitzkrieg for example - but a lot of his fiction reads like it was written by Frederick Forsyth on his holidays.

James Cosmo survived. That was enough of a shock to keep me watching season two.

I'm sure Archer will be able to find a fresh supply of trendy dark blue shirts while on the run on the moors
