Berlin 1933: Natalie (Fay Bainter), an Englishwoman, has been working in the city for years, in the most boring office job - but every Friday she moonlights as a spy, nothing big of course, just delivering information from one spy to the next in the most unconspicuous way. She does it not so much out of patriotism but merely for the skills. Of late though, with the Nazis' rise to power, her job has become more dangerous (though also more important). And Natalie has picked exactly this time to fall in love ... with a German, Hans (Tonio Selwart). She asks her boss (Murray Matheson) to let her out of her job as a spy, to which he agrees in principle, but also tells her what she does is like a drug ...

It's Natalie's last assignment, and her partner (Martin Brandt) is arrested on the job before her very eyes ... and what's worse, Hans sees it all and learns she's an enemy agent this way - but since he's no Nazi sympathizer himself, he suggests they both leave Germany for good ... but then the wife (Miriam Goldina) of the partner who's been arrested shows up on Natalie's doorstep to warn her, and while Natalie rushes off to warn her boss, the police arrests Hans whom they find in her place ... and ultimately, that's the very reason why she cannot give up her spying ...


Actually a pretty decent episode of Suspense: The story is captivating and involving (even if it seems overly constructed every now and again), the actors are uniformly decent at least, and the direction shows an extent of creativity rare in TV-series. That all isn't to say this is one great piece of television, as the episode's ending lacks a proper pay-off and the very limited funds of the show show up a few times to often to really make the thing work, but in all it's a nice piece of eary TV nevertheless.
