Chessgame: The Complete Series
Oscar-nominated film star Terence Stamp makes his television debut in this intriguing six-part espionage drama based on the acclaimed series of novels by Anthony Price.
Adapted by television heavyweights Murray Smith (Strangers, Bulman) and John Brason (Colditz, Secret Army), Chessgame stars Stamp as David Audley, a university professor who covertly heads a small team of counter-intelligence agents for the British government. This stylish, intelligent and much-sought-after release features adaptations of three of Price's novels: The Labyrinth Makers, The Alamut Ambush and Colonel Butler's Wolf.
