The mid-1980s in Britain were a scary time, with Thatcher and the Tory party utterly and arrogantly dominant, the miners facing a brutally determined state, mass unemployment, nuclear standoff, vicious cuts in public spending, hmm, a bit like what we’re all in for soon. Bob Peck was terrific, but the real iconic figure was John Doe Baker as Darius Jedburgh. Superb.
God, do you remember Jedburgh? You have to remember we all thought we were going to die in a nuclear war shortly, for real.
