David Audley (Terence Stamp) and his team of counter-intelligence agents plodded through this slow-moving six-part spy drama from Granada.

The series was based on the acclaimed series of espionage novels by Anthony Price.

Apparently, Stamp did not want to work in television and only accepted the role because he needed the money. It shows.
