Produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd and written by Bafta Award-winners Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Spectre, Skyfall, Casino Royale), SSGB is a complex thriller focusing on British Detective Douglas Archer. Forced to work under the brutal SS in occupied London, Archer is determined to continue to do his job in the service of his country, but against impossible odds.

We first meet Archer in 1941, with the vast majority of England and Wales are under Nazi occupation after losing the Battle of Britain. Pockets of resistance continue to show their defiance against the occupying German forces, but after a German pilot is murdered by a British Resistance fighter, tensions in London could not be higher.

When investigating what appears to be a simple black market murder, Archer is dragged into a much darker and more treacherous world where the stakes are as high as the ultimate outcome of the war. The elusive American journalist Barbara Barga may hold the key - but can he trust her? And when his lover Sylvia endangers her life by bravely making a stand against the oppressive regime, Archer is forced to confront a deeper dilemma. Can he carry out his duty to defend law and order when he is working for the wrong side? What is he willing to risk in the fight against fascism?

Detective Douglas Archer is played by Sam Riley, Barbara Barga by Kate Bosworth, DS Harry Woods by James Cosmo, Sylvia Manning by Maeve Dermody, PC Jimmy Dunn by Aneurin Barnard, Fritz Kellermann by Rainer Bock, SS Standartenfuehrer Dr Oskar Huth by Lars Eidinger, Mrs Sheenan by Christina Cole, Douggie Archer by Louis Serkis, Bob Sheenan by Kit Connor and John Spode by James Northcote.


Seems like The Man In The High Castle without the alternative universes element and obviously set in England. It looks great from the trailer, so hopefully should be a good watch.

It was slow going at times but there were some great moments. Like most first episodes, just setting the scene for the rest of the series. So I imagine it will pick up next week!

I found it slow as well, most new series do, hoping this picks up a gear or two, its only 5 episodes long, its got potential. When I first saw the trailers for this at the beginning of the year, I thought it be worth watching, as I love war dramas for now I'm sticking with it to see where it goes.

And its got Maeve Dermody wub.gif from the Agatha Christie 2015 Xmas mini series, And That There Were None

That's where I recognised her from ohmy.gif

I always thought she looks like she could be Keeley Hawes' younger sister as well.

I reckon Maeve Dermody will break out into bigger roles pretty soon, she is just a talented actress, love to see her in a future Bond movie.

GOD it was dull. Surprising considering it's a fascinating subject matter.
