The Night Manager – A romping good yarn

I A romping good yarn written by John Le Carré?  Well, you would expect little else. 

If you haven’t caught up with the series.  Look away now.

Another triumph for the BBC, I thought.  The cast, were nothing less than brilliant.  Olivia (bring on Jane Bond) Coleman never fails to deliver.  What a part to play when pregnant!  I nearly had the baby for you in the last episode.

Hugh (you play the really bad guy really so despicably) Laurie.  Hmm, I wonder what actually became of that nasty Mr Roper, hopefully something really horrible.

And as for the two Toms … well.  Tom Hollander (Corky) you got your just desserts in the desert and Tom (where have you been all my life) Hiddleston how come I never noticed you before?  How did I miss you in Thor?  The black locks, maybe?

The ending left me a little flat.  Or was it just that I was yearning for more and yes, there were a few continuity problems towards the end but what the hell!  Who cares.  This is certainly the best, ‘keep you on the edge of your seat’ yarn I have seen for a long time.

If I had secretly hoped  there would be a second series … It is not to be 😦
