Thinking person's spy drama
13 June 2011 | by (Washington State) – See all my reviews

I think this was an underrated series, and a very brief one it was. The acting and writing are superior to outstanding, and much of the art of its craft comes from the use of language and the consummate acting and directing--in addition to the strong scripts. Alex McCowan as Mr. Palfrey is simply superior--every bit the equal of Alec Guinesses's performance in (was it?) "Smiley's People". Yet the supporting casts are strong too, and worthy of praise--it's just that McCowan's performance is so strong and "right on", regards the character's motivations and overall personality traits, just a few of which are quirky. If you can, take in every one of these--especially if you like a more challenging variety of writing rather than action-oriented material.
