Rating: 7.1

In the early 1970s, during the Cold War, the head of British Intelligence, Control, resigns after an operation in Budapest, Hungary deteriorated wrong. It transpires that Control believed one of four senior figures in the service was in fact a Russian agent - a mole - and the Hungary operation was an attempt to determine which of them it was. Smiley had been forced to retire by the loss of control, but is required by a high ranking official of the government to investigate a story told to him by a fake agent, Ricky Tarr, that there is a mole. Smiley said that the failure of the Hungarian operations and the ongoing success of the operation witch (a clear source of significant Soviet intelligence) confirmed this, and took the task of finding him.
