User Reviews

My comments express my delight for this TV series and wish for it to be released on DVD
17 September 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This TV series is one of the most brilliant I ever seen. It compares, if not exceeds "Tinker Salior Soldier Spy" and "Smiley's People" (John Le Carre, please forgive me). To this day I do not understand why it has not been released on DVD or at least VHS, DVD would be preferable due to the skillful photography and editing. I would love to see this released.
