  • Did it really all begin so long ago, when Smiley went to India and met the unspeaking Russian who has become his nemesis?

    None of the guest stars in "Tinker, Tailor" had as brief a role as Patrick Stewart, who has no dialogue at all, and yet, in his few silent minutes on-screen, provides the perfect counterweight to Alec Guinness, etching an unforgettable portrait of cunning, patient malevolence. We believe absolutely that the infamous Karla, so much spoken of throughout the series, is every inch as clever and as dangerous as we have been told. The episode also shows us, for a matter of seconds, the cigarette lighter which proves to be of such importance in the unravelling of the plot, and which re-appears, briefly, but with devastating impact, at the end of "Smiley's People".
