In The Bridge Maker a trip to the Eastern Block turns into a disaster for Burnett, he is arrested and subjected to interrogation and accused of corruption on a grand scale, Alan will need to call on a very special mercenary friend to get Lewis out of this one.
A very Cold War episode this one, things not turning out overly well for Burnett until Crowe comes to the rescue. Ray Smith, that bluff northern character actor turns in a great Russian role here as the scheming Milcjek. We are also finding out a bit more about the sinister John Quentin who in each of the episodes has been trailing Burnett and Crowe on behalf of some unseen adversary. He’s a mercenary who seems to want Crowe out of the way more than Burnett at times.
