Trivia

Although heavily modified, the series bears close resemblance in the overall arch of an infiltrated government official, the web of double crosses concerning military industry, its highly nationalistic tone and even title, to Verräter (1936), a German propaganda film produced by the UFA under Joseph Goebbels. The movie is now considered (despite its original use) a thriller masterpiece, and became the highest grossing film in Europe, winning several awards. See more »

The Feel of "Smiley's People"
1 April 2019 | by VengeSee all my reviews

"Traitors" is a first-rate addition to the spy-genre, but not in the tradition of James Bond, but rather in the mould of Len Deighton's "Funeral in Berlin", or John le Carre's "Smiley's People". A story that builds piece by piece, as small, almost insubstantial clues are brought to light, while a web of danger lies in the dark corners. Those who are expecting a fast-paced action thriller will be sorely disappointed, but those who want a glimpse into the world of what a spy really does, leading a careful double-life, while trying to attract as little attention as possible, will be pulled into this rich story. Wonderful acting by the entire cast, but especially by the gutsy Emma Appleton, the tough but fragile Keeley Hawes, and the manipulative spymaster, Michael Stuhlbarg. Looking forward to future seasons.
