Former spy Fred Leiser is lured back from retirement to investigate, and manages to cross the border into East Germany in a dangerous night-time operation. But the world has changed since The Department's glory days during the Second World War. The harsh realities of the Cold War now prevail, and there is no place for heroes....
With a distinguished cast including Ian McDiarmid and Philip Jackson, this compelling dramatisation perfectly captures the atmosphere of le Carré's chilling novel of deception and betrayal.

Maybe my favorite LeCarre novel?
Smiley is a supporting character in this one, but no matter. Simon Russell Beale is still terrific as Smiley and so is Ian McDarwid as LeClerc. It's a great story of probable Circus stitch up of moldering Whitehall agency, exploiting a Polish emigre hero from WWII in the process.
