User reviews



My wife and I really enjoyed the first 3 episodes of this series. We spent a bit of time after each one speculating as to what might be going on and what the hidden secret might be. What the bad guys were really up to. What the motivation was for promoting the challenge to the PM's leadership.

As we got closer and closer to the end of this final episode, we kept trying to figure out how they were going to "reveal all" in the little time that was left in the series.

Unfortunately, as we arrived at the final credits it turned out that even the writers of this series didn't even know what all the secrets were and we just looked at each other in amazement that we had learned virtually nothing of what was behind the plot(s).

Gina is fobbed off with a few mysterious words about why her parents died and she's satisfied with the little she is told. We weren't, so how could she possibly have been satisfied with the vague answer she was given.

Then we get to the plot by Morpeth and Verney to push Wentworth into the PM position. There are naturally a couple of shocking twists in the final plot that potentially make this interesting but the key word there is "potentially". One twist makes very little sense. The other makes absolutely no sense at all. I'll say no more as I don't want to introduce a spoiler.

Even now, the morning after watching the final episode, I'm still finding myself trying to construct scenarios in which any of the largest twist is logical but all I keep saying to myself is: "... but that makes no sense!"

This is well made. No doubt about it. The lead actors are wonderful. It's just a shame that the writers didn't really think through the plot when they were coming up with the ending because it all comes across as even they really didn't know what was going on themselves.

This series was called "Hidden" and I guess it was called that because the plot was as "hidden" to the writers as it was to the viewers.
