If you missed out, time to see what all the fuss was about, as Claire Danes (below) acts her socks off as Carrie Mathison, the intense CIA agent, with bipolar disorder, grimly convinced that a former PoW, Sgt Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), has been "turned" by al-Qaida while under their "care".

The series starts with 24-style mayhem before settling into a tense, very gripping battle of wits ("How do you know what tea I drink?") between the excellent leads.
