The Veil - The Camp

There's an interesting idea at the heart of The Veil that might make for a tense 100-minute thriller. I have some doubts on whether or not it can be stretched over six hours, however. The first episode is mainly setup as MI6 Agent Imogen Salter (Elisabeth Moss) extracts Adilah El Idrissi (Yumna Marwan) from a refugee camp before she can be killed by those in the camp who have discovered she worked with ISIS. The premise of the show involves Imogene working the asset on the road while attempting to extract a vital piece of data without giving too much away. The setup isn't half bad, foreshadowing issues MI6 may have with a trigger-happy American (Josh Charles) who isn't too happy with the current situation.
