Superb TV Film
27 January 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Ian Holm is excellent in this period piece from the tail end of the cold war. Helen Mirren, Celia Gregory and Nigel Havers all support well - there is even a tiny cameo from a very youthful Rupert Everett.

I'm a big fan of Poliakoff as both a stage and TV/film writer, but have always found his stage work filmic and therefore am finding a preference for his TV/Film work. In true Poliakoff style, there are sinister undertones, but how much is espionage, how much is prejudice and how much is paranoia?

This is a superb TV film and well worth seeking out if you haven't seen it.
