smashing Cold War drama
14 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best examples of Cold War dramas. At the very least, it's got Vladek Sheybal, who is (should be) adored by all who are in their mid 40's. It was a cracking story, identical to the book (always a bonus) and has Stuart Wilson, who is gorgeous! Unusually for such a drama, it has a real human story at its heart, and it is wholly believable.

The story cracks along at a brilliant pace. Its setting is unusual, to say the least. I cannot remember another drama set in Iceland.

For those people who are my age, we grew up with Cold War dramas, even if it's just Harry Palmer.

I would love to have this on DVD. It's up there with any John Le Carre.
