Re: BBC Original British Drama

I thought Page 8 was very good, nothing stunningly original, but well handled, and not quite as sanctamonious as it could have been. At the end of the day I liked that Nighy's character was more annoyed that the PM had not disclosed the information generated by torture, than by the torture itself. Not that I have any love for what the Americans did, but I think making the character some kind of bleeding heart liberal would have felt completely fake. I like as well that he didn't bring the govt down, he settled for giving Weisz's character closure.
