Episode 2: November Nights
It’s the morning after the night before. The Berlin Wall has fallen. East Germans can travel freely at last. And at the offices of the HVA (a division of the Stasi) the shifty agents and handlers we know well are ransacking their files, shredding what they can, in dread of what the West might do next.
It’s a good image for communist collapse, but our superspy hero Martin looks as doe-eyed and calm as ever. The Russians are sending men to abduct his son to Moscow; meanwhile, the CIA, the French and the West Germans all want to recruit him. But through it all Martin looks as if he has broken off watching a Sunday-afternoon movie.
Mind you, he can get mean when he wants to. “I’m done with all the secret agent stuff,” he tells a CIA guy at one point, before pulling a move straight from the 007 playbook. But Bond never played jazz piano like Martin.
