“In recent films, even James Bond has swapped glamour for grit, but Apple’s Slow Horses goes far beyond that. The humor is pitch-black, and the overriding tone is one of cynicism—the perfect match for post-austerity, post-Brexit, post–Boris Johnson Britain. In the foreground is a succession of double crosses, mole hunts, car chases, and assassinations. The background is a quiet hum of institutional failure, political corruption, and hopelessness.” (The Atlantic)
