Classic TV – Mr Palfrey of Westminster – S01 Ep02


A rather different spy drama

Mr Palfrey is a mild, middle aged man—the epitome of a middle rank British Civil Servant.

He is also a spook.

This series focused on the more cerebral than physical aspects of the espionage business. It was perhaps this lack of action that was regarded as its major drawback for the typically prime-time audience on Britain’s then-largest commercial TV channel, ITV.

Two series in total were made in addition to the pilot.

Well cast and worth a look.
