A masterpiece in the evolution of TV Espionage.
18 March 2013 | by mccarthypaul89See all my reviews

A superb, masterful series in the riveting evolution of the genre from the superb Dangerman to the superb Callan (yes, all three were superb - and I don't doubt that this evolution of the genre will be a much-noted part of our cultural history, like impressionism to cubism, or blues to pop). As others have noted: suffused with class issues and the dirty truths of the espionage game - but not yet quite as much as Callan. What a tragedy that so little seems left - search the attics!

I first saw it in the UK, then was ecstatic to see it again after migrating to Australia. So tapes definitely went in that direction. My bet is that there's a few dusty tapes lurking out in the colonies, such as regional (country) TV stations in Aust. Please keep your eyes open.
