Did You Know?


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 »


Completely destroyed by bombing in May 1941, the House of Commons at the Palace of Westminster was not used again until rebuilding was completed in 1950. The Commons used the House of Lords chamber instead, so the parliamentary scenes should show red seating, not green. See more »

Indeed Traitors !
31 March 2019 | by omegafrankieSee all my reviews

This stands alone as a good yarn about spying in post war Britain, the storyline is interesting and the acting throughout is excellent. I am a little surprised at the low ratings it gets but I'm guessing it does not contain the action which many people seem to crave these days. Instead of this, the drama demands your attention and makes the viewer think about the issues it raises. The cynical viewer who wants endless action should watch pieces containing Jason Statham.
