In January 2013, the Telegraph liked the series for many features: appropriateness for "intergenerational shared viewing," "never... too visually brutal," and the "playing of the minor characters... was convincingly understated." The Guardian complained, "It should have been the perfect spy thriller. It had everything. Except tension."
