Sonia was the researcher for Stephen Collins, a member of the parliament and chairman of the Energy Committee. Cal McAffrey starts to investigate the death of Sonia Barker.

State of Play (IMDb, Wikipedia) is a six part political thriller about corruption, love affairs, press- and political-games. The whole serial fast-paced, full of twists and turns. Just when you think to get a grip of all facts, something new happens. The story and screenplay are a extraordinary good. The cast is also excellent with popular British actors such as John Simm, Bill Nighy, David Morrissey, James McAvoy. All thing considered, State of Play a outstanding thriller.
I can recommend State of Play everyone who likes thrillers.
Unfortunately there are no good trailers out there =(.
