Clues to plot of Berlin Station 2? #richardarmitage

Here‘s an article in German from the Berliner Zeitung via the German RA Board, about a scene they were shooting. I won’t translate it word for word, but the gist is that a German actress, Natalia Wörner, was shooting a scene for the series in which she was at the podium in a political rally for a group called “Perspektive für Deutschland.” This isn’t a real political party but I wonder if it’s a reference to “Alternative für Deutschland,” the current far Right political party.

  1. Yep. Looks very much like an AfD/Pegida rally

    • I wonder what whatshisname thinks about it, her boyfriend …

      • Ich denke Heiko Maas kann das schon einordnen. 😉
        Obwohl so ein Auftritt als Kandidatin einer “Quasi-AfD” schon ziemlich befremdlich aussieht.

        • I’m not sure that’s a role I’d want to play. Although when you think of how many people end up playing Nazis … ?

          • … oder mordende, drachentätowierte Psychopathen … oder von Goldgier zerfressene Zwerge …
            Ja, ja, frau wundert sich. 🙂

  2. Herzlichen Dank für diesen Hinweis.
    Bin plötzlich ganz aufgeregt, denn die Verhandlungen mit einem deutschen Sender stehen kurz vor dem Abschluss. Es wäre wunderbar, endlich die ganze erste Staffel zu sehen. Bisher kenne ich ja nur die ersten beiden Folgen und das Weitere habe ich deinen Ausführungen entnommen. Wie das allerdings im deutschen Fernsehen in synchronisierter Fassung funktionieren soll, ist mir nicht so ganz klar. Der Wechsel zwischen deutscher und englischer Sprache ist ja sehr prägend für diese Serie und wenn das realistisch wirken soll, dann müsste ein Großteil mit Untertiteln laufen und das ist hier überhaupt nicht üblich. Vielleicht interessiert sich ja “Arte” für die Serie. Bei Arte kommen Untertitel durchaus zum Einsatz.
    Na ja, bleibt abzuwarten.

  3. Interesting, will read through in detail, will be topical with the elections coming up and all that…
    By the way, sorry to be off topic, i think you were definitely right in thinking he replaced Damian Lewis in O8. I must have been v tired and preoccupied elsewhere to not notice earlier that DL had been in London for a really long time already rehearsing for a play – Goat, which premiered the other day to fairly good reviews. I did notice the play and DL in it, i just didn’t make the connection (play is on my to-do, as is Salome, need to get my act together to book). Interesting DL chose to do a play instead (or maybe he had committed earlier and timelines for shooting shifted; in any case he’s been doing quite a bit of high profile TV lately so maybe he was just keener on being back on stage).

    • I don’t know that I ever made that assertion, but I think it was a hypothesis shared by a lot of people. (I haven’t followed it that closely, tbh).

      I think the only reason to be in a film like that is as a career builder or vanity project — presumably Lewis doesn’t need either of those things. I can’t imagine it will be great art. But I could be wrong.
