Storyline

While draining a small lake to make room for a new housing development, a crew finds the wreckage of an old missing Cold War-era British Air Force bomber, with the remains of the pilot at the controls. An investigator assigned by British Military Intelligence to find out what happened soon discovers that there's more to the incident than there appears to be, and it involves smuggling, the black market, the Russian KGB, the Nazi SS and a series of murders.

Very good for TV
29 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got this on one of those bulk, el cheapo DVD sets you find at department stores. I was very surprised at the quality of production, writing and acting.

The ending is a bit quick but believable. None of the characters, even the bad guys, are hollow. They all have some depth.

No one is a fool and most folks are quite clever. It is very heady and intellectual at times and even rather funny in other.

It is well cast and never dull.

It is the best of 80's British TV.

I really enjoyed it. If you find it, I recommend you watch it.
