My one gripe about David Hare’s Turks and Caicos was not one character was wasted. Like when someone uses a nail gun early in a thriller you know what will happen. Thus the protagonist’s friend got a job at just the hotel he wanted to search rooms and was handily the brother of the Police chief – you could argue her son was not needed but he gave the reason for Nighy’s character to beach bum and run into an old CIA lag who yes knew him from before. His ex girlfriend miraculously works for the bad guy and gets flown over to boot for a reunion. What I would call a cacophony of coincidence.

Nonetheless an antidote to the ridiculous violence filled shows that depict secret agent torture and violence as achieving anything. Not a patch on Page 8 mind.
