Synopsis:
Singapore, 1941. Patriarch Walter Blackett (David Morrissey) leads a life of wealth and privilege, far from the horrors of war-torn Europe. When Blackett s business partner Webb (Charles Dance) is incapacitated, his son Matthew (Luke Treadaway) is summoned to the Far East. With the issue of his own legacy to consider, Walter and his daughter Joan (Georgia Blizzard) must do everything they can to remove the threat Matthew poses. Joan launches a campaign of seduction but Matthew is drawn to a mysterious Chinese dissident, Vera Chiang (Elizabeth Tan). With the chaos of war taking root across the continent, a complicated love story ensues and the era of colonial privilege teeters on the brink.

Far from gripping - The Singapore Grip review by IG

Spoiler Alert
20/10/2020

Downhill all the way after a promising start concluding with the last episode that has all the feel that the money had run out in equal measures to the enthusiasm of the scriptwriters, director and actors. Visually not a bad job as a period piece but there is little else to recommend. The style is confused and often farcical, the characters are all two dimensional at best, a simplistic plot that lacks intellectual depth.
