First Aired: October 5, 2008

Part 1 of the five-part "Last Enemy," a fast-paced thriller about a mathematician (Benedict Cumberbatch) who's swept up in intrigue when, after years abroad, he returns to England for the funeral of his brother, a doctor killed in Afghanistan. Things turn odd when he arrives at his brother's flat to discover a seriously ill woman being tended to by his brother's wife (Anamaria Marinca), a Bosnian doctor; and odder yet the next day, when he's recruited to work with TIA (Total Information Agency).
