Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this BBC spy miniseries is full of sophisticated dialogue and a twisting, intricate plot. Although the show's violence is relatively tame compared to modern standards (and the theatrical version), the plotting and characterization will make this series interesting only to teens with the patience to pay close attention and follow the events. The show is not based on any historical elements but there could be an educational opportunity for teens interested in learning more about the political environment of the cold war and the role of espionage in world politics.

Sexual Content

Occasional mild innuendo and references to love affairs, but very little onscreen romantic activity.

Violence

The show deals in violence usually as an act of last resort, with occasional fisticuffs or threats of more serious attack. Very little actual blood or graphic violence.

Language

Occasional "damn" and "hell," as well as the British slang term "bloody."

Social Behavior

The atmosphere depicted in the series is one where intelligence and cunning are prized, as is loyalty to one's country. However, there are also elements of deception and violence that are fundamental to the lives of these spies.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Frequent period smoking by both primary and secondary characters; social drinking with occasional conversational reference to overindulgence in alcohol.
