The distinctions between Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! get fuzzier every year. Masterpiece leads off its new season with A Murder of Quality, a two-part, British-made murder mystery based on an early John Le Carré novel. The author adapted it for television himself, and Murder stars Denholm Elliott (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) as Le Carré’s veteran character, aging spy George Smiley.
A Murder of Quality is the second novel by John le Carré. It follows George Smiley, the most famous of le Carré's recurring characters, in his only book set outside the espionage community.
