Hidden ep 2

I’m not sure we’re that much further forward after this episode, because for every plot development there’s a fair amount of wheel-spinning. So, on the one hand, Gina’s off to Paris and hanging around in the sort of deserted factory which only really exists to give bad guys somewhere to chase people around; and in return we’ve now seen the murder of baguette lady and Harry as getaway driver several times. David Suchet as Sir Nigel Fountain – Gina’s father? – added a little class, although judging from his bad-guy-face-to-camera he’s clearly up to no good. And links have now started to emerge between the political plot and the Venn one: it’s all down to evil billionaire Morpeth, by the look of things.

Other gripes: the conceit with the “IT helpdesk” directing the murderers was a little too fond of itself, and consequently overused. As for Gina: why doesn’t someone just check with the Law Society to find out if she’s a lawyer? You’d think Harry would know that; except, of course, she’d then be a little less mysterious, and we can’t have that. And Anna Chancellor’s still not on screen enough. Despite all that, though, there’s just enough about Hidden to keep me watching.

    I think we need to have more radio news reports about the Prime Minister. They cut back on them a bit. Suppose they needed the time for the Helpdesk.

    Think I’ll contact the Law Society myself. I’m still not sure if Harry is a lawyer.

    Good to see the annoying son on remand.

    In catch-up mode …

    Okay, but perhaps lacking a bit of pace. Still, it’s on the right side of pretentious, which is where The Shadow Line ended up straying. I’m with you, Jed – I’m getting a bit bored of the flashbacks, especially when half of them don’t tell us anything new. But I’m still very much with the show.
