Storyline

While taking a walk, Peter Chapman and his wife, Sarah, are followed by two bungling spies, Dexter and Lewis, who find it difficult to take photos of their quarry. Peter, an Electronics Professor at the local Polytechnic, is then suddenly sacked from his seemingly secure job without warning - and with no reasonable explanation being given for this decision. Taken to MI5, he is made an offer he can't refuse - a job offer! Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

This show is so much fun to watch
8 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My whole family loves catching The Piglet Files on PBS on Saturday nights. It is so clever and funny.Piglet is the only one with any sort of intelligence. Everyone else just seems to be clueless. They bungle all of the assignments and Piglet (usually accidentally) cleans up the mess. (I still can't figure out how his wife doesn't know that he's an MI5 agent. Even though this takes place in Great Britian, I think Americans audiences can relate. Just change MI5 to CIA and you've got a hit show! I'm disappointed that they are not making new episodes. It seems that by the time we get good British shows here, they're already canceled in GB, which is too bad.
