New to Alibi, Tom Hughes (Victoria) and Brian Cox (Succession, The Bourne Identity) star in this six-part stylish and complex Cold War spy thriller set in the secretive world of 1970s espionage. The cast also includes Paul Ritter and Victoria Hamilton.

In the opening episode we are in London, 1972. When a defecting KGB officer reveals the existence of a devastating Soviet plot by the name of Operation Glass, the charismatic head of MI5 must assemble a secret committee to help protect Britain.

As the Soviets awaken sleeper agents to carry out the plot, the new team are faced with an unidentified and invisible threat. The first agent reactivated is a civil servant, bullied and blackmailed into working for the KGB. As MI5 scramble to identify his role in Operation Glass, Joe Lambe (Hughes) becomes obsessed with the reappearance of his nemesis, the Soviet agent codenamed Odin.
