Kidnap and Ransom

Kidnap and Ransom - Reviewed.

The first instalment of the brand new ITV three part series “Kidnap and Ransom” went out on ITV 1 on Thursday 13th January. The programme stars Trevor Eve as Dominic King a private hostage negotiator based in the UK. There are a number of other well known actors and actresses in this drama.

The storyline for the first part was of a biologist Naomi Shaffer (played by Emma Fielding) who was kidnapped on the way to the airport in South Africa. The pharmaceutical company was prepared to pay the ransom for her release that in the end did not happen as the deal to release her was just about to happen when she was kidnapped (after being injured in the gun battle) by another gang of kidnappers.

We will wait to see what happens next Thursday or even the third week of this series.

The newspapers reviews I have seen liked the programme and were looking forward to the second one. Hopefully the high standard continues and more of these programmes are made.

If you are going to be working in an environment in the world where you could have a similar experience it would be sensible to actually taking out a Kidnap and Ransom “travel insurance”policy. On the other hand if you are sending your staff off to places where a similar situation could arise, again consider very seriously taking out insurance.
