Definitive cold war drama series. Based on le carré book. Superb performances from a star cast. Guinness is at the centre, acting everyone else off the screen, without even trying, as the former senior member at "the circus", George Smiley, called out of retirement to "clean the stables", after a soviet mole is suspected to be at work. It is a brilliant, cerebral, slow burner plot. Superb.
