Following the Soviet’s launch the first intercontinental ballistic missile, and the start of the Space Race, fear permeates the lives of all.
Here’s a plot recap for the sixth and final episode, which aired at 9pm on Wednesday 26th June 2019:
Mr Field (Mark Bonnar) suspects Richard, Arthur (Timothy Spall) and Kathleen (Keeley Hawes) are behind the attack on his dog and office.
General Armstrong (William Gaminara) invites Samuel to join him at his club, and explains his theory to Samuel: there’s a cabal of disaffected people, a coalition between once-important men who now feel themselves sidelined, and some rogue officers from MI5 and MI6 who believe there is massive Russian penetration in the secret service.
Kathleen, Richard and David (Greg Austin) arrive back at the house. David still assures them that he is not Anthony.
She takes him to the boarding school to see Tezler, but he is still adamant that they have mistaken his identity.
Joel (Fode Simbo) and Hannah (Lily Sacofsky) go to the dance hall, where Joel is attacked by a group of boys and a large fight breaks out -which sees Hannah punched in the face.
