An Honorable Woman
The BBC drama is a excellent modern drama with many twists and turns that keep you following the detailed plot to the ending which is a nail biting conclusion for what is an excellent TV mini-series.

At no moment during the drama does it let you down, each episode leaves you wishing you had more hours each day for quality programs like this.

It is an exceptional mini-series the BBC should be commended on its choice of subject matter - which is right up to date with world politics in the Middle East.

Unique and Remarkable
This is one of the most well thought out, well conceived, well cast, well acted mini-series I've ever viewed. Having lived in both London and the Middle East, the plot is very relevant to modern day events in both places. It drags the viewer in, and won't let go! Maggie, Stephen, and the rest of the cast were incredible to watch..... I actually watched it in it's entirety twice in a two week period. We need more movies/mini-series like this one!!
