    This is one hefty and intense episode. This is not about spreading the fear of Islam, or to see the islam fear spread. This is about any religion which has it's good and bad people. This is about a community trying to survive. Alexander was great in Deep Space 9, Vertical Limit and Syriana, but here he is awesome. This episode opens up a sinister cannister of doubt over all of us. The black and white line is suddenly a lot more grey, and it does leave us with the thoughts how it is possible to see the whole picture and how to make the right decision. I agree that a decision should be made, but when do you choose between bad and bad?

    MI-5 is trying to protect nnocent civilians, but how do you feel when this is an impossible asignment?

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Tom refers to the method of torture used on Johnny as strappado. However, it was actually bastinado. The strappado is a form of torture in which a victim is suspended in the air by means of a rope attached to his hands which are tied behind his back, whereas bastinado is a form of corporal punishment in which the soles of the feet are beaten with an object such as a cane or rod or other implements. It is also sometimes favoured as a form of torture because, although extremely painful, it leaves few physical marks.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Mohammed Rachid: What is it, to wear an hundred and fifty pound American trainer shoes? To put on jackets with a label from Milan in Italy? What is it to drink alco pops, to go clubbing and end up fumbling a slut of an English girl on a canal path in the dawn, your mind wrecked with pills? It is nothing but ash in the mouth, the taste of the death of the soul. For the West sells you the illusion of an earthly paradise, it has to, that is how American Jews on Wall Street make their money. But, despite all the pressure of the West's gawdy promises, in your schools, on the television in the cinema, the way your British friends behave, even the advertisements in the streets, you have kept yourselves pure. You have become the West's worst fear, young people they cannot sell to, that they cannot touch. You know the way to the true paradise through a martyr's death. My young brothers, I envy you.

    • Harry: We've just received this from Christine Dale.
      Tom: Why is CIA London Station suddenly sharing with us?
      Harry: Christine Dale is a very nice young woman.
      Tom: I doubt that's the reason; Americans always want you to do something.
