    Five Days II

    The performances, by the now commonplace exemplary cast, are believable. Everyone manages to deliver their story-laden lines with the right sense of nonchalance and menace. What is particularly stylish is the look: the direction and the camerawork. A A Gill

    Surprising and utterly gripping Tim Dowling
    The Guardian

    The drama enjoys the luxury of its long span and keeps you guessing right up until the very end. Superlative. The Observer

    "If we did this for every drama it would become less and less effective. It makes a bold claim for one programme to dominate the schedule in this way." Fortunately, it's a bold claim that Five Days lives up to. Gerard Gilbert
