A place to ask the soapboxers for recommendations.

Can some recommend me a TV series or Film that has an espionage theme; set in UK, TCOTU and/or overseas; classy and well paced with a lot of atmosphere and sensibly built tension.

Basically i'm a big John Le Carre fan and love things like the 2011 film version of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and TV adaptations of The Night Manager and The Little Drummer Girl.

I loved Homeland, especially the later seasons, but not really a fan of 24.

Spy (with Sacha Baron Cohen) isn't bad.

Would prefer stuff made in the 21st century.

I'd like to see stronger participation in our Rating threads so this thread wouldn't be necessary.

Dunno if this would be any good for you.

It wasn't too bad. Better than I thought it would be.

To be frank, the chances of me finding anything i've not seen are slim, but if anyone can unearth a hidden gem it's the lady and gents of the soapbox.
