Originally broadcast on the program Masterpiece Theater in Great Britain by the BBC in 1991.
A four-part spy satire about two long-forgotten KGB agents in England who have no intention of coming in from the cold. In fact, their 25 years as 'sleeper' agents -- during which time they had no contact with the Kremlin --have been quite comfortable. Albert Robinson (Warren Clarke) has a wife, three children, and a good job in a Lancashire brewery; and bachelor Jeremy Coward (Nigel Havers) is a London investment banker with a couple of residences and a string of girlfriends.
