    Wiki: "Secret State is a 2012 British four-part political thriller, starring Gabriel Byrne, Charles Dance and Gina McKee, and "inspired" by Chris Mullin's novel A Very British Coup. It delves into the relationship between a democratically elected government, the military and big business. The first one hour part premiered on Channel 4 on Wednesday 7 November 2012, with the other three parts being shown the following Wednesdays."

    I assume you are watching that on BBC. I don't think we get that series in the US. We have BBC here but I don't think it's the entire lineup.

    I downloaded it. Part 4 hasn't been screened yet back in the UK.

    I have not seen it but I did see A Very British Coup.
    That was pretty good. If Secret State is as good then
    it should be worth checking out.

    If I was home on Wednesday nights, I'd be watching Arrow. Sue me.
