Yea, I commented on that to my friends as well, really good casting choices.
I've just started watching this and got through the first two episodes last night. It's fantastic and I'm really enjoying it. Like many here I remember the actual event unfolding on TV in 1986. I do wonder how many cancers across Europe have been caused by it over the years.
We were having a conversation in work today and a guy who had cancer in the last decade actually mentioned there is quite solid data which shows a flow of increased cancer rates from the epicentre year on year. He mentioned it's been dramatically on the rise since the event across most of Europe and there is even a pattern further and further out as the years go on. Not saying this is true, just mentioned what he's told us, however he's generally a guy who is quite accurate with information, kind of like a human encyclopedia.
Is his name Sheldon?
Really enjoyed the series, it just got better with each episode.
He's less patronising but you could make a fair few parallels between the two
Just saw the final episode and thought it was far away the best - my criticisms of the other episodes didn’t apply. Really very good.
Great series. Feel like watching it again.
In case any of you are interested, there's a full interview with Dyatlov from 1994 that was uploaded a few days ago
I just finished watching this last night. Great acting and very informative story telling.. I remember the news breaking at the time but not much after that. There wasn't the media coverage back then like today.
A stark contrast of communism and today.
I did wonder while watching if it signified the start of the end of the eastern bloc and the cold war. They kind of admitted that they were swallowed by their own internal politics, lies and the lack of help from outside.
Best show I've seen in a while!
I recognised the KGB agent in episode 3 and 5.. The older chap with glasses but I can't find him listed under the cast..
the chap who told Valery Legasov that he was nothing, that no one would know who he is ..etc
KGB First Deputy Chairman Alexandr Charkov?
I believe he's a fictional character:
I just finished it. What a brilliant series.
Watch the last episode last night and thought the series was very good.
Reminds me of how our IT projects are run.. Push the button regardless of the consequences, lie the point the finger
This is pretty much management in 90% of corporate companies but these days we have e-mail as evidence to keep us from being in the dog house!
Tuesday at 9 on Atlantic, is a one off called The Real Chernobyl. Looks good.
Enjoyed the series. Not the best thing I’ve ever seen but very enjoyable.
I liked that they had Trevor from Eastenders as the head of the miners. Kept thinking he would freak out and want to pour gravy over everyone. Instead he just got naked...
Just finished this too, was really enjoyable other than the dog bits that seemed to drag
