Wonderful drama and superb acting
10 February 2003 | by (Holmdel, NJ USA) – See all my reviews

The two episodes that I have seen are wonderfully written and the acting is superb. Michael Kitchen is appropriately low keyed and is probably George Smiley's cousin. The 1940's are vividly presented and the historical revelations of the mixture of defeatism, fear and resolution are effectively portrayed.
