TRUE-LIFE ESPIONAGE yarn adapted for the small screen by masterful TROY “EDGE OF…” KENNEDY MARTIN. Eponymous “ace” (SAM NEILL) is planted inside newly-Revolutionised Russia by UK Whitehall toff Major Fothergill (PETER “DECREASING” EGAN) to sabotage best laid plans of Bolshie bastards. Lenin (KENNETH “LOOT” CRANHAM) and Stalin (DAVID “DR. WATSON MK. I” BURKE) not best pleased.
