Gabriel Byrne, Douglas Hodge, Gina McKee, Charles Dance, Rupert Graves and Ruth Negga put in another appearance in episode two of this political drama inspired by Chris Mullin's novel A Very British Coup. Following his shock election victory, Tom Dawkins (that'd be Byrne) launches an inquiry into the toxicology anomalies at the blast in Scarrow. As British intelligence locates the whereabouts of al-Qaeda chief Tamin al-Ghamdi, a reluctant Dawkins is pressed to take him out. Meanwhile, after her superiors at GCHQ fail to take her findings seriously, Agnes (Negga) reaches out to the one man she thinks could help her.
