This BBC2 series presented yet another spy story featuring nothing we hadn’t seen before. And yet it was well-written with plots that were ingenious and involving – at least in the early episodes – and the characters came across well.
The relationship between Philip West (Anthony Valentine) and his colleague, Culliford (Brian Peck)was interesting, as was the ambiguous nature of the Principal, Sir Iain Dalzell (Clifford Evans).
Guest stars over the 13 episodes included Desmond Llewelyn, Geoffrey Bayldon, Maureen Lipman, Kate O’Mara, Richard Hurndall, Andrew Sachs, Roger Delgado, Dave Prowse and John Woodnutt.
