James Norton as a mobster? It’s an offer you can’t refuse…

Welcome to your new TV obsession!

This compelling and lavish eight-part series kicks 2018 off in style, as the ever-brilliant James Norton plays Alex, an ethical banker living in London, doing everything he can to turn his back on his Russian family’s shady mafia past.

But a series of shock events leaves him with no choice but to engage with a world he never wanted to acknowledge… With the global scale of The Night Manager, the intrigue of London Spy and hugely popular Mr Norton thrown in for good measure (we’re a long way from Grantchester!), this is an irresistible thrill.

Continues tomorrow.
