This movie is based on a true story as written in A.P. Scotland's autobiography "The London Cage". The plot has greatly exaggerated the actual events of A.P. Scotland's experiences, including the addition of a fictional love interest.
In the London of the 1910s, a self-effacing, decent man of fifty confronts what appears to be the perfect opportunity to rid himself of his unloved, nagging wife and be free for a blissful life with his mistress.
Bernard Samson is an aging British spy, who was once at the top of his game. He led his own spy team in East Germany from Berlin. Everything changed when he lost a team member and he's been blaming himself for it ever since. He now works behind the desk with a team of young highly educated spies, who've never seen a day of action. When evidence of a Russian mole within their ranks appear, he's asked once again to return to Berlin and use his experience and old contacts to help catch the traitor.

Game set match DVD
I have a friend who has all 7 DVDs of it. It was made in Australia from Tapes of the series. I understand it took many months to compile it all But I saw it and it was great. So nice to see it after so many Years. They did change the plot - that's why Deighten was so unhappy with it, Even though it was beautifully done. Ian Holm was born to play Bernard Sampson I don't know if there's any interest in obtaining the DVDs but they do exist Something this good just can't disappear. Call me sentimental-I miss the cold war Simply because I love the books. So, if anyone is interested in getting a copy let me know and I'll Forward request to my friend. He doesn't want to do anything illegal, He just loves Deighten
