The Honourable Woman

Realising Israeli powers had only ever wanted to use the Stein name, company and connections for their own political and intelligence affairs, Nessa angrily forges ahead with the data cabling initiative in partnership with Palestinian Jalal El-Amin.

Separately, Shlomo and Hayden-Hoyle discover the CIA was also aware of the Israeli wiretap and, aided by Monica Chatwin, has managed to covertly piggyback on top of it for their own listening purposes.

Events take a dark course during a visit to the West Bank to launch the latest phase of data cabling.

CAST: Maggie Gyllenhaal (Nessa Stein); Andrew Buchan (Ephra Stein); Janet McTeer (Dame Julia Walsh); Katherine Parkinson (Rachel Stein); Tobias Menzies (Nathaniel Bloom); Lubna Azabal (Atika Halabi); Stephen Rea (Sir Hugh Hayden-Hoyle); Lindsay Duncan (Anjelica Hayden-Hoyle); Genevieve O’Reilly (Frances Pirsig); Eve Best (Monica Chatwin); and Igal Naor (Shlomo Zahary).
