Storyline

Amidst the thaw of glasnost, the Kremlin discovers that two Soviet agents, sent to England under deep cover in 1965, have been "lost." A beautiful and ambitious Russian agent, sent to London to track them down, becomes embroiled in a tangle of CIA, KGB and MI-5 plots and counter-plots as the two lost agents, now utterly assimilated, try to avoid detection.

A jewel
17 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series was superb. It's listed in the IMDB as a comedy, but it is in fact a Cold War drama of the most compelling and chilling sort. Why on earth it hasn't appeared in video is beyond me. It deserves the highest rating.
