Danny (played by out gay actor Ben Whishaw) is like many young gay men in a big city - looking for Mr Right, but happy to have fun with Mr Right Now! But a chance meeting with the seemingly innocuous and very handsome investment banker Alex (Edward Holcroft) seems to be leading to true love! Things quickly unravels when the reclusive banker disappears under suspicious circumstances, exposing his real identity as a spy and forcing Danny down a dark path to reveal the truth.
Written by acclaimed best-selling gay author Tom Rob Smith (The Farm), this is a sexy and exciting thriller set in the world of espionage, but also very honestly depicts the issues which gay men encounter - sex, drugs, alcoholism, difficulties with intimacy, lack of acceptance by family, fear of discovery and depression. Academy Award-winner Jim Broadbent is Danny's gay mentor and confidant, and movingly draws back the curtain on how a different generation of gay men had to live. The iconic Charlotte Rampling also lends her steely presence, and the supporting cast deliver the kind of outstanding performances associated with BBC productions.
This 2 Disc set contains all 5 episodes of the acclaimed BBC television series.
