Quality EntertainmentBy a customer from Bromley, Kent , 26 Feb 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]A superb production; excellent acting & an excellent script. I wholly recommended the DVD to those who like quality drama. Don?t be put off by references to the technical quality, it may not be up to modern standards but it?s totally acceptable. Anyway, concentrate on the drama, not the technology. [In case it?s not made clear elsewhere, this movie length production was made by Portobello Productions for Thames TV in 1991].

Could be Smiles betterBy HDX (124 reviews) from Barry, Wales , 11 Jul 2011Released in 1991 but with a distinct whiff of 1970s production values this is a mediocre affair. Denholm Elliott is an excellent actor who warrants two stars alone. Middling stuff.
Smiley meets Agatha Christie?By Montmorency (14 reviews) from Abingdon , 01 Apr 2009This is a rather slow-moving 'Smiley' story, and more of a detective whodunnit than the usual Le Carré spy story, although the usual suspects are on display....public-school snobbery, establishment snobbery, feisty female ally, and old standby Joss Ackland, acting everyone else off the screen as usual.
If you are a Le Carré collector, you'll have to watch it to add to the collection, but it is more of a duty than a pleasure, to be honest.
Worth watchingBy a customer from Brentwood , 28 Sep 2008Denholm Eliot takes over where Alec Guiness left off and becomes George Smiley for this one off drama. It would have been good to see more of the ever excellent Glenda Jackson but still this story, with its all star cast, is gripping.
A murder of quality.By SueD (24 reviews) from London , 24 Apr 2008If you're a Le Carre fan then you'll enjoy this.
A Murder of QualityBy a customer from Cambridge , 26 Dec 2007A pure treat: a deft and perfectly cast adaption of the Le Carre novel. Denholm Elliott is superb as 'Smiley'.
