Confirmed for BBC One on 1 October at 9pm to 10pm
Sunday 1 October
Page makes his own emotional goodbyes - to his lover Alison Laithwaite (Jessica Raine), the troubled wife of Lieutenant Ed Laithwaite (Stephen Campbell Moore).
Ed, meanwhile, airs his frustrations to Major Harry Markham (Ben Miles) about the treatment of an Adeni prisoner. When Markham insists he is simply following orders, Ed slips off to meet an NLF informant, who warns of an imminent NLF attack, directed at the RMP and spearheaded by new leader Abdul-Kadir Hakim.
Settling in, Honor is immediately drawn to the enigmatic Alison, despite Joe’s concerns about their husbands’ differing ranks. She is also welcomed by Mary Markham (Amanda Drew), mother to six year-old George.
But danger is never far away in Aden...
