During WW2 a group of young men were trained as spies in Japan and then sent out into the world.
Episode 5 continues the episodic formula that has now been established. This time we are in London and our spy of the week has been captured. Unfortunately, we kind of know what to expect. Things seem to be going all wrong for our spy but (having watched the previous episodes) somehow this will all be part of the plan. And that knowledge kills the tension here. What saves this episode is the good pacing and atmosphere. I’m not seeing a lot of rewatch value in this series but I’m glad I picked it up this season.
