Storyline

An Englishman, Jonathan Pine (played by Tom Hiddleston), is working as the night manager of a Cairo hotel. He gets involved with a local woman who is the girlfriend of a local gangster. Through her relationship with the gangster she has acquired information linking illegal international arms sales with Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie), an English billionaire. She is soon found dead, murdered due to her having this information. Fearing for his own life, Pine flees, ending up working at a remote hotel in Switzerland. Four years pass, and then Roper visits the Swiss hotel. This rekindles Pines thirst for revenge, and he is enlisted by British Intelligence to spy on Roper. What follows is a very dangerous game of intrigue and deception. Written by grantss

Trivia

Writer David Farr said of his writing this mini-series adaptation of John le Carré's source "The Night Manager" (1993) novel: "The Night Manager [book] is a very different story to le Carré's Cold War novels. It has a searing political anger. He wrote it in the mid 1990s and his disgust aimed at US and UK foreign policy in Latin America was nakedly apparent. I didn't feel that the Latin American milieu had the prescience now that it did then. I have a personal interest in the Middle East and it felt tragically perfect to set the series there. The Arab Spring was only two years old when I started the adaptation but already one felt the awful unraveling beginning, and the West's utter confusion as to the right moral position to take. I had a very strong instinct that we must begin in the heart of that once hopeful month of January 2011, in the heart of Cairo. And go from there." See more »

Goofs

The scenes at Istanbul harbor ("Haydarpasa Dockside") were not shot there. The Arabic alphabet and the car plates hint that Morocco was used. See more »

started out well...
12 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

but things started happening in the fourth episode that seemed implausible. not in the sense that someone grows wings and flies implausible... but even with the little we know of a certain character, they make a decision that seemed HIGHly unlikely. not for someone who's achieved their position in that sort of work. but that was the second seemingly 'off' move for a character. one had dire consequences, the other was ridiculously foolish, most things considered, as to context... i don't like spoilers. and i don't care to be more specific than the vagaries i've already mentioned... it's well played and photographed. some beautiful landscapes. some exotic... but the plot seems amateurishly thought out/clichéd in certain parts of the infrastructure...which, for me, weakened it as a whole...
