Starring the award-winning Simon Russell Beale as George Smiley, and with a distinguished cast including Ian McDiarmid and Philip Jackson, this compelling dramatization perfectly captures the atmosphere of le Carré’s chilling novel of deception and betrayal. When word reaches The Department – an ailing section of British military intelligence – that Soviet missiles are being installed close to the West German border, it seems the perfect opportunity to show Control and Smiley, their rivals over at the Circus, that The Department still has value.

From the Publisher
An experienced agent is mysteriously killed on a freezing night near a foreign airport. Thus begins an intricate mission of military espionage that brings together three desperate men.
The zealot, the pawn, the string puller: each seeks a different kind of glory, each risks the thing he values most, each is caught up in a double-sided game that carries him from London to Berlin -- and from treachery, to betrayal, to cold-blooded murder.
"Le Carre is simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster." -- Newsweek
