Big Disappointment, 12 Nov. 2012
With all the media coverage at award ceremonies etc building up this version of the Le Carre classic I was looking forward to this especially seeing the cast list. However I was bitterly disappointed when I watched it. I remember the BBC version when first broadcast and have indeed bought the DVD and still could not praise it enough. The story is explained much better and keeps you guessing until the finale.
Stongly recommend if you are a Le Carre fan or just like spy thrillers, get the BBC version first, you wont regret it.
