Jonathan is now accepted into his entourage by Roper, who gives him a new identity as Andrew Birch though waspish Corkoran makes it clear he mistrusts him. Using his friendship with Daniel and hearing a startling revelation from disillusioned Lady Langbourne Jonathan is able to communicate information to Angela Burr, who also seeks the help of Juan Apostol, an associate of Roper whose daughter recently committed suicide. In London the permanent secretary at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and minister Geoffrey Dromgoole are sceptical of Angela's operation and unaware that one of their number is betraying facts to Roper. Whilst sleuthing in Roper's house on Mallorca Jonathan also discovers Jed's secret. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


First appearance of Omar Barghati, played by Nasser Memarzia. See more »


The New Zealand passport given to Jonathan is inaccurate: New Zealand passports now have a black cover with a prominent silver fern, while older passports were dark blue with the coat of arms. The country coat of arms on the front cover is incorrect, the personal details page does not have the descriptors in Maori, and the passport contains a number of visas, including an Australian one. However, New Zealanders do not need a visa when traveling to Australia. See more »


Richard Onslow Roper: See, children grow up thinking the adult world is ordered, rational, fit for purpose. It's crap. Becoming a man is realising, that it's all rotten. Realising how to celebrate that rottenness, that's freedom.

Weak episode
28 April 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

"The Night Manager" arrives to the middle of its run and offers a middle of the road episode, not bad, but not great either. This third episode does little to advance the story, and it is not especially fast-paced.

Of course, that doesn't mean it is bad. It is just not as good as the first two episodes. The acting keeps being really good, and the scenery, direction and cinematography is good too, but the plot suffers from I-need-to-make-this-last syndrome. The hour could have been condensed in maybe half of it and it would have made the show a more engaging one.

The atmosphere is good, and the show teases us with more to come. But the classic feel becomes a little bit stale. Let's see if it improves in the second part of the mini-series.
