A Bit Better
19 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A couple of issues. First is a destroyer that lost its way in a storm and ran into a barge, seriously damaging it. Negotiations with an unstable government. The second is the ongoing investigation into the death of a British agent. This is going to lead to some loose ends for the next episode. We also have the reappearance of Emily's father after 23 years. It has an interesting twist.
