    Anyone else watch it?

    Couldn't quite know what to make of it and thought it was trying to be far too 'witty' at times, but Jodie Cromer is fantastic in it.

    Enjoyed it, bit random at times, like you say, tried a bit hard. Will keep with it, as a Saturday night thing. Didn't make me want binge on I Player.

    It's got Thandie Newton lite in it.

    Thinking about it, Thandie Newton would have done such a much better job me thinks. No offence to Sandra Oh, but I couldn't quite buy into her character at times.

    It could be a great show if they cut out the constant attempts at humour in every scene. Feels forced.

    Still worth a watch though. Got a very good cast.

    Its based of a series of Novellas from Luke Jennings and it’s supposed to be a spoof Bond with female characters. I haven’t seen it but it would a guess be more original Casino Royale that anything else

    Yeah, probably correct.

    Definitely has that spoofy kind of feel to it.

    Jodie Comer is brilliant. Always thought she was a good actress, but in this she gets the chance to really go to town and take on multiple personalities.

    I thought you meant the character played by Vincent Cassel,one of my favourite actors in Public Enemy .
    While googling to clarify my memory came across some images and I hope he's ok as he's looking very drawn and without most of his hair but has just remarried
    I guess it's that phenomenon of screen icons never ageing.
