A perfectly-enjoyable episode, albeit one littered with too many characters and a pretty motive-less villain plot. Why exactly do they want to kill the Prime Minister, other than they're evil? All we needed was a line or two about the PM slashing funding for railroads or something. 7/10

Does it matter why? Perhaps they're foreign agents who want to destabilise the country politically. Perhaps they're terrorists. There doesn't have to be an economic reason.

They're definitely meant to insurgents from a foreign power, but it is understated.
