Mid-1980s, the ‘star wars’ defense, the women’s camp outside Greenham Common, Northern Ireland a quagmire, Joanne WhalleyJoe Don Baker, the late Bob Peck, slippery backroom government wallahs hand-in-hand with the industries they’re meant to regulate, the miners strike, Bloody Thatcher, ghosts…. All of this was put together in Edge of Darkness (Imdb) a thoughtful, deep BBC thriller that 20 years later still stands as one of the best series ever made.
Thanks to a certain plugged-in zinester for reminding me to go see if it was available yet. It’s now available in the UK and at some point should be released in the US.
