I suspect that this is something that will eventually show up on PBS in the US. I'll likely miss it unless I see that it is on and record it on my DVR. "Hydrogen bomb" piques my interest.

who would've guessed that a hydrogen bomb would drive you over here for a visit, Lee? :)

Is it any good?

It has good 'ingredients": the cold war period, Britain's testing of its first bomb. a russian jew inventor, MI5.
And, the 'raisin' on top of it - Toby Stephens with his magnetic presence.
Definitely worth seeing the series!

Good cast! I have long been a fan of Linus Roache.

I haven't seen him in anything ever since he was a young boy.

Jason will be all over anything having to do with the hydrogen bomb. It's going to have to go on the list.

DEZMOND said...

Theresa Mahoney said...

Because something of that magnitude is fascinating, especially among the male species.
