No, they don’t, Richard Armitage
Uch. I’m starting to get exasperated. The BFV is the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (similar to the FBI in some respects); there is no more Bundesvermögensamt (an office that administered federal real estate), not since 2004 or so. When I heard the script, I assumed it was scripted that way because Miller was supposed to notice that Esther Krug’s car was registered to an office that doesn’t exist anymore. But if there were a Bundesvermögensamt, the acronym would never be BFV. (It would be BVA, but that’s Bundesverwaltungsamt — which is responsible for other things like student loans and educational equivalences and so on.)
I’m exasperated, for the record, because I had the impression that Berlin Station was relatively free of this kind of error in comparison to Spooks. I hope we’re not going to spend the whole season wondering if stuff like this is a clue or a script error.

ETA: Armitage deleted that tweet a few hours after he made it. I’m posting it here because otherwise the conversation makes no sense.
