You talking about the ITV series from 30 years ago?

I had no idea they'd done this. I still remember the original version from the 60s.

I was looking forward to this when I saw the trailer.
A murder mystery set in post war Germany.
The period detail looks great and the sets & CGI recreation of 1946 bombed out Berlin are believable. However bits of the plot are unbelievable and kind-of let the whole piece down.
7/10 on Netflix now.

"Trending now on Netflix" it says. I never know whether that's good or bad but this series is worth your time.

On the surface it's a murder mystery with clues unfolding as we jump backwards and forwards in time, but what makes this different is that every episode is taken from the point of view of a different person involved.

While that's not a particularly new technique (Band of Brothers did something similar) but it does make it pretty engaging following the interweaving characters and plot line.
We're only about half way through but it's up there with some of the best TV from this year.
