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>

Great show!
5 August 2004 | by (Philadelphia, PA, USA) – See all my reviews

I recently picked up the first two series of this show on DVD. VERY funny. I really enjoyed it, although I had never heard of it and only bought it because it has Nicholas Lyndhurst (Only Fools and Horses, Butterflies) in it.

As untenable as the premise may sound, the show is usually very believable and sometimes takes a semi-serious turn like when Piglet's wife is kidnapped accidentally, but always pays off with a big laugh in the end.

Nicholas Lyndhurst is great as usual in this series, and his costar Clive Francis puts in a good performance as his boss, Drummond. But deserving special mention is Michael Percival as Dexter. They say playing stupid is hard. Well Mr. Percival does an excellent job making Dexter both amazingly stupid yet completely likable.

Highly recommended.
