Production Notes

  • The title music is the slow version of the theme as used in the previous episode.
  • The 1940 Commander Traynor refers to the “Ministry” when he really means “the War Office”.
  • The end credits roll over a plain black background.

TVTimes Synopsis

“Liz and Simon’s bewilderment increases. Why is England suddenly at war? Why are they being treated like spies and, worst of all, why does the naval rating who arrested them look so terrifyingly familiar?”
