COBRA: CYBERWAR

Starring Robert Carlyle as Prime Minister Robert Sutherland, COBRA: CYBERWAR is a Sky original production set in the heart of government during a major crisis.

About COBRA: CYBERWAR

In the aftermath of both solar and political storms, Prime Minister Robert Sutherland attempts to steer the country on a more even course. He is assisted, as ever, by his loyal Chief of Staff Anna Marshall alongside a team of dedicated advisers.

An assassination on British soil, however, unleashes a chain of events that threatens to develop into a crisis even more serious than the one from which the country has recently emerged. An invisible global enemy, not playing by the rules and operating outside national boundaries, appears to be bent on our destruction, leaving an entire country unsure as to who is friend and who is foe.

COBRA

Interesting parallel to Covid vaccine (when we get it) – A bit messy but still watchable. NO SPOILERS here

If you’ve read my previous reviews you know I hate “spoilers” It’s no fun to know too much so what is in this review is learned in first 10 minutes. I’ll let you discover the rest for yourself (as I did).

This British political/disaster series, produced by the commercial Sky Network, premiered in the UK in January , just BEFORE the Covid pandemic. It couldn’t have been timelier. Recently it has aired on PBS but, consisting of six minute episodes, it is best watched in consecutive sittings.

The set up is a bit far-fetched and implausible: A “solar flare” breaks off from the sun and heads straight to England. First it disrupts airplane communication (violent big jet crash at beginning) and then the whole country loses power. Britain is divided into five regional grids and they only have FOUR emergency generators. The Prime Minister must pick one region to wait for a new generator. That starts the tension. Like the “political” fight that the US will have when a vaccine becomes available, the citizens of the region that is not chosen rebel against the government and riot in the streets and block highways. The Prime Minister cares about the safety of the citizens but he has a Home Secretary from the opposing party who wants his position. Hence the politics.
It gets a bit messy (and off-track) when the PM’s teenage daughter is involved with a drug death, and other issues I won’t reveal, so he’s pulled in many directions. The characters are well- drawn and the actors excellent. The parallel of the power failure spreading like an infectious disease is ironic given when the series was produced, and the end result will keep you guessing. The set design (technical) is impressive. This is listed as Season One; a Season Two has been greenlighted but not started. Worth a watch for “disaster film” and “political drama” fans.

There are about 15 minutes of bonus featurettes on the DVD including “meet the characters” and the way they staged the plane crash (again in first 10 minutes)

Cobra review: Cheap-looking series creaks and clunks along

When the country is in trouble, the government meets in Cabinet Office Briefing Room A, which in acronym is known as Cobra (Sky One). Like the snake! Hissss. Lobby hacks never tire of reminding us of this, because it’s the closest politics gets to sounding cool, but we shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that this new six-part drama is basically about a meeting room. The premise is to show the inner workings of government and the emergency services as a catastrophe unfolds, in this case solar flares that disrupt power and electronics. How will a handful of dedicated public servants juggle the demands of their office with their own messy personal lives? Only time will tell.

Six hours, to be precise, including a few merciful ad breaks. In true British style, the threat to the nation’s security is the weather. The sun is playing up, shooting out solar flares that could take down the whole power grid and disrupt plane travel. In this universe, the Met Office appears to have a network of satellites observing our home star. Even less realistically, their predictions are accurate. The prime minister, Robert Sutherland, is played by Robert Carlyle, last seen contending with a mysterious threat from space in the BBC’s sorry Christmas adaptation of The War of the Worlds. He must look to the heavens again.

In the cold open, a passenger jet, diverted from failing French air-traffic control, tries to find a landing in the UK before it runs out of fuel. Eventually, it is diverted to RAF Coningsby but it doesn’t make it and the pilots decide to put her down on the A1. Nobody asks why it was sent so far north, although it’s entirely believable that if I fiery crater had to be created somewhere, the government would prefer it was north of Watford.

The action cuts back to the events leading up to the situation. One by one the major characters introduce a complication in their personal lives. Hard-nosed chief of staff Anna Marshall (Victoria Hamilton) comes home to find an old flame on her doorstep. Sutherland’s daughter goes on a post-graduation bender that ends up with her friend in a coma. (In TV land, a politician’s child doing drugs is one of the most certain auguries of catastrophe.) Disaster-planning expert Fraser Walker (Richard Dormer, one of the few actors to emerge with dignity) has a father in a care home and an estranged wife.

There is a political threat, too, in the shape of Sutherland’s home secretary, Archie Glover-Morgan (David Haig, struggling manfully), a Brexiteer who sees opportunity in the chaos. Naturally, the baddie is a Brexiteer, in a world where the prevailing political energy is pure centrist dad. “You voted to leave the EU, Archie, not the human race,” Sutherland snaps when he’s wondering whether to ground air traffic. “This is a hard decision but we do have to decide, there’s no middle ground here,” he adds, for the hard of comprehension.

The message is clear: Sutherland is a decent man, doing his best in the circumstances. Despite being a Conservative, he is not above reaching out to a former Labour MP, Francine Bridge (Marsha Thomason), when Hamilton thinks it’s a good idea.

Nobody expects Cobra to be The West Wing or House of Cards, but it might aspire to Jack Ryan or Designated Survivor. It ought to be well-oiled nonsense. Instead, it creaks and clunks along, its rusty machinery visible at every turn. It looks cheap, too: in particular the aftermath of the plane crash, which seems to have been put together in a car park with a few leftover fireworks. The toe-curling expository briefing about the solar storm will linger in the memory. (“There will be just 30 minutes before we know if this storm will fuse a few kettles or send us back to the Stone Age.”) By the end, an extreme weather event that disrupts electronic devices doesn’t seem so bad.

Political drama COBRA arrives on PBS this October and, if the first trailer is any indication, it's going to feel uncomfortably timely for many of us.

The six-part drama, which aired on Sky One back in January, follows an elite government task force known as COBRA, which must respond to a terrifying, nationwide crisis in the United Kingdom.

COBRA apparently stands for Cabinet Office Briefing Room A, the room in which the government's leading experts, senior politicians, and crisis contingency planners must all gather when anything truly threatening or terrible goes down. In this story, a massive solar flare is causing power blackouts and disrupting things like the electronics that help keep plans in the air. 

The idea is to show how the government functions as a catastrophe unfolds, and how such a high-pressure situation might impact - or be impacted by - the already messy personal lives of public servants. (And don't forget their political opponents who are all out there just waiting to pounce on any missteps!) 

It's possible that this show could have felt prescient when it aired in the U.K. eight months ago. But now, as it arrives on American screens in the midst of a global pandemic, right as we've just watched our own government struggle to maintain a consistent public response to a continually unfolding disaster it just feels well I'm not sure what it feels like, to be honest. Too timely? Uncomfortably real?

Watch the trailer for yourselves below.

The series, written by The Tunnel's Ben Richards, boasts a stacked cast, starring Once Upon a Time's Robert Carlyle as Prime Minister Robert Sutherland, alongside an ensemble that includes Victoria HamiltonRichard DormerDavid Haig and Lucy Cohu

COBRA arrives on PBS stations nationwide beginning on October 4, and all episodes will be available to stream for PBS Passport members from premiere night onward. (We'll be recapping weekly, as per usual, however.)
