Deep State 1

Deep State is a British television espionage thriller series, written and created by Matthew Parkill and Simon Maxwell, that first broadcast in the United Kingdom on Fox on 5 April 2018. The first eight-part series, which began filming in May 2017, stars Mark Strong as Max Easton, a former Field Agent for MI6 who is recruited back into the field.


Episode 1 (Old Habits)
The start is a real cliche of the thriller genre . Max Easton (Strong) is and ex MI6 agent, living in France with a wife and children. Events in the Middle East prompt his old boss to bring him back in to solve a problem. Harry has been killed and it turns out he is Max’s son.

Meanwhile his wife is the suspicious type and finds out what his old job really was. This I found hard to believe. If he has been with her since the birth of the oldest daughter (about 10) it’s surprising it took her this long. Maybe she is part of the conspiracy ?
