Four-part drama about a writer recruited into espionage work by British intelligence during the First World War. Based on the writings of Somerset MaughamWritten by

Explanatory comment in closing credits of final episode: "The Ashenden stories were based on W. Somerset Maugham's experiences as a spy in World War I. Many of them were destroyed because of the Official Secrets Act. After the book's publication, Maugham never again made his home in England. He died in France in 1965." See more »
Great Mini Series. It's a scandal that it's not available on DVD or video anywhere
It's outrageous that this series is not available ANYWHERE in any format. The people responsible for scouting TV series for video production should be taken out and shot for missing this one. Meanwhile the video and DVD markets are literally drowning in crappy TV series and movies. For shame!!
