It’s 1971, and the U.K. and the U.S.S.R. are engaged in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, with spies on both sides trying to figure out their enemies’ next move. When a Soviet spy informs a team of intelligence agents that Russia is planning a mysterious operation on British soil, the operatives must race to figure out the scope of the plan and stop it. For agent Joe Lambe, whose lover was killed by the man behind the plot, the mission is very personal. But who can be trusted – even within the agency – remains to be seen.

Loved this! Refreshing to watch something that keeps you on your toes and that you can't predict what will happen next. Great cast! Tom is not just another pretty face!
A little slow to start, but overall, really enjoyed it. Actors terrific.
A bit drawn out with a few implausible plot twists, but well acted and produced, with excellent period design especially with all the odd but authentic british picture cars. I enjoyed it and watched through the end.
Contrived. I could not finish the first episode. The chase in the abandoned amusement park is just an invention without any semblance to reality. Why not an abandoned coalmine in the middle of London? It would have tied nicely with the coal miners strike that is mentioned in the storyline and provide very dramatic lighting. The Little Drummer Girl is a masterful rendition of a similar story. This one tries too hard.
