| Dark secrets indeed
"Circles of Deceit" was a series or a miniseries from the '90s starring Dennis Waterman. It's really middle of the road - not awful, not great.

Waterman is John Neil, who works occasionally for the SAS, being dragged back to work in an earlier episode.

In this one, Neil's employers inform him that a former SAS colleague is not up to something outside the law. They want him to re-befriend him, possibly get in with him, and tell them what he's doing.

Of course, his Controller (Susan Jameson) and her associates have left out a couple of things, so Neil is in the dark. He finds out that a member of Parliament has a dark secret, and people seem to be dying because of it. There will be more deaths before Neil finishes his investigation.

I'm not crazy about Waterman in this type of role - he's very intense, but it seems put on -- a constant frown, a rough voice. As I said in another review, when he's relaxed and doing comedy mixed with drama or vice versa, he's much better. This kind of character isn't his strong suit.
