In 1934, four brilliant Cambridge men are recruited to spy for Russia. Fueled by youthful idealism, a passion for social justice and a talent for lying, they take huge personal risks to pass Britain's biggest secrets to Moscow. Based on true events.
There is a scene with a steam train leaving a station during World War 2 with the blue double-oval "First" sign (for First Class) on the window and the red triangle "No Smoking" sign also on a window. Both these signs were not introduced until the railways were nationalized in 1948 and became British Railways. See more »
You kept your socks on.
My Aunt Virginia gave them to me. They're hers. "Whatever you do, don't take the socks off. Not under any circumstances."
I'm in bed with Virginia Woolf's socks.

Only halfway through the 4-part series so far but Cambridge Spies has definitely lived up to my expectations. Much impressed by the excellent Toby Stephens, having seen how versatile he can be from: Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Sunset Heights, Great Gatsby and of course Die Another Day! I have to say what a superb actor Tom Holland is too. Putting aside historical inaccuracies (this has never claimed to be a documentary anyway) in favour of sheer entertainment value, this is proving to be a fast-moving, truly gripping drama. I'm hooked!
