Plot & Details

In this British spy spoof, the dangers to World War Two intelligence agents from interagency rivalry in London itself are nearly as great as the dangers to them from the battlefield mayhem concocted by the enemy. Rival operations by allies turn out to be equally threatening. In the story, the highly eccentric Monk (Edward Fox) is a senior agent of the British Secret Service who runs his operation out of a mental hospital. In the story, Monk recruits as a woman agent the lovely Corporal Merriman (Emily Morgan, to help him track down and stop the German agent, Cat Lady. Merriman is soon embroiled in plots and counter-plots, including the infamous Operation Fattypuff and Thinnifer. Eventually, a team of operatives parachutes into occupied France to carry out their objectives.
