Explanatory comment in closing credits of final episode: "The Ashenden stories were based on W. Somerset Maugham's experiences as a spy in World War I. Many of them were destroyed because of the Official Secrets Act. After the book's publication, Maugham never again made his home in England. He died in France in 1965." See more »
This is one of the best TV adaptations of a novel I ever saw. As usual, the real good stuff gets locked up in a vault somewhere and eventually fades away. I wish I had recorded all the episodes the last time I saw it (over 10 years ago).
