Seen the first two, last one tonight. I’ve enjoyed it, well written and probably pretty close to actual events.

I remember going to Salisbury just after this happened for a couple of nights and remember seeing police stationed around the city centre and near Skripal's house. Must watch this! Thanks for heads up.

I don't normally watch this type of programme but SWMO wanted to watch it so I followed suit,quite impressed and if it's near the truth it just goes to prove what damage could be done if someone really wanted to.

I haven't been watching it but my wife has. Last night she mentioned that the Sainsbury store in Salisbury was on it and asked if I remembered it, when I replied that I didn't, she said 'you must do, the last time we went in there we bought a french loaf'
This was over 30 years ago! How do they do it? We really don't stand a chance, do we?

Nice to see it being filmed on location. Salisbury I found to be a really nice town.

My eldest daughter lives and works in Salisbury, she says that most of it wasnt filmed in the town. The Mill bar now renamed is my regular watering hole when we go to visit, a nice place to sit outside and watch the fish in the river.

It does not bare thinking about if that guy had not found the scent bottle it cost a life but probably saved god knows how many seeing there was enough of the nerve agent to kill a few thousand.

Sounds a tear jerker and interesting. I would like to watch it but I boycott anything BBC.

I've watched all 3 episodes over last night & tonight. At first I thought it was OK, about average. But I'd give it a chance.
I don't feel it improved at all as it progressed and then it sort of fizzled out. Overall I'd give it about 4 or 5 out of 10.
Different strokes for different folks I suppose.
