The best TV-series ever done!!!!!
25 July 2007 | by mdamiano-2See all my reviews

All these TV-series are the very best ever done!!!!!!!. The principal actors are superb!!!!!!. Very real, and incredible actual in spite of it was written in '70!!!!!!!!. You have to see it!!!!. This particular episode is not the better one but almost it. I have to say that the actors performs are quite good in every one of the seasons and in all the 5 years that was on TV. Lewis Collins (Bodie) is the tuff guy and Martin Shaw (Doyle) is the clever one, and they are supervised by Gordon Jackson (Cowley) a very very very perfectionist man who is the chief of CI5 (an intelligence division of the Royal force) in United Kingdom.
