SE­CRET STATE

ABC, 9.30pm

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - COVER STORY -

Po­lit­i­cal in­trigue, big busi­ness con­spir­a­cies and a top- notch cast – what’s not to like about this classy Bri­tish mini- se­ries? In this fi­nal episode of the four- part thriller, Prime Min­is­ter Tom Dawkins’ ( Gabriel Byrne) stance on the Royal Cale­do­nian bank is seen as a per­sonal tri­umph, though Tony’s ( Dou­glas Hodge) death is a per­sonal tragedy. Jour­nal­ist El­lis Kane ( Gina McKee) goes ahead with the story of how the prime min­is­ter, as a sol­dier, had in­ad­ver­tently caused civil­ian deaths in Bos­nia, but this pales be­side the news the Ira­ni­ans have ar­rested sup­posed Bri­tish spies. Edge- of- your- seat stuff.
