It's just a bit of gardening.
I just need a bath, that's all.
-那我把水壶烧上吧 -不用 我要出去
- I'll put the kettle on, then. - No, I'm going out.
什么 你需要帮助吗 去看医生
What? Do you need help? A doctor?
不用 我没事 一会儿就回来
No, no, I'm fine. Be back later.
I'm looking for one of your members, Mr Shahbaz Karim.
If you would like to follow me.
You bloody liar.
You said he was a good man.
Tell me, in what way exactly was he a good man?
He served the country. He made sacrifices.
No, he lied over and over again.
Before the war? out in India.
Out in India!
He married Dorothy,
even told her Gladys was his poor bereaved sister.
Yes, that's how it started.
What started? His utter depravity?
请注意言辞 威尔森夫人 你不知道
Please be careful, Mrs Wilson. You really don't know
what you're talking about.
"闭嘴 威尔森夫人 回家吧"
"Oh, shut up, Mrs Wilson. Go home."
"Stop asking questions."
What exactly do you want to know?
Who was he?
Who was my husband?
Alec was a first class agent.
One of a tiny handful at that time.
His work out in India and then during the war,
he saved hundreds of lives.
He betrayed Gladys. He seduced Dorothy
and he married me. Why?
When I first met Alec, he was happily married to Gladys.
He had all the makings of a brilliant agent
but he had no contacts.
I needed to find a way to introduce him to Indian high society.
Alec. How's the novel coming on?
I'm writing to my wife, Gladys.
The novel, however, is with my new agent.
He's sent it to every publishing house in town.
不错 来吧 有个人我想让你见见
Good. Come on, there's someone I want you to meet.
Knock, Karim, why don't you?!
Miss Wick, may I present Mr Alexander Wilson.
Hello, I'm Dorothy.
No, got my own.
So, did you enjoy the show?
I was in the palm of your hand.
What about the play?
It was good, funny.
I've never seen it played for laughs like that.
- Was it too much? - Not for me.
Dorothy, I need Alec to get into the summer party
at the Governor's residence.
I was wondering if you needed a partner.
I could see that Alec was troubled by the arrangement,
having to deny his family and his life with Gladys.
But we had work to do.
Our intelligence says the mole is within the inner circle.
Start with the ADC.
Partial to whisky.
With Dorothy on your arm...
You can go anywhere,
It's for your country, Alec.
Alec soon realised what I needed from him.
Once unsure about deception, he began to enjoy it.
Dorothy, I would want you to introduce and then disappear.
Alec, I need you to speak to him alone.
Commit every word to memory.
You're in love, remember?
But Dorothy told me they simply fell in love.
-她撒谎了 -撒谎吗 我不确定
- So she lied. - Lied? I'm not sure.
We spend our whole lives justifying the decisions
we made in the past
constructing our own intricate versions of the truth.
When you live with deceit for long enough, it rubs off.
You learn to mould every situation to your own advantage.
As the weeks went on, I became concerned.
Their affair was useful to our undercover operation,
but I never imagined that they would fall in love.
- Morning. - Sorry.
Are you all right?
..Bad dreams. When I write, they go away.
What are you writing?
I'm trying to.
Good morning. Where's Alec?
He's at the bazaar, he'll be back soon.
Don't get in too deep, my dear.
You set us up.
I thought this all would have suited you rather well.
I just don't want to see you get hurt, that's it.
Well, I'm fine, thanks for your concern.
Darling, Karim's here.
I got your post.
I know you've been waiting
to hear from a certain person in England.
- Thank you. - No.
That's just your sister, Gladys.
Now this one...
Longmans Green, isn't that a publisher?
They want to publish my first novel
and the one that I'm writing now.
They'll wire me the advance!
Alec's real life was feeding into his fiction
and Dorothy soon became part of his story.
So they did work together,
had some sort of arrangement?
But they only married because Dorothy fell pregnant.
Dorothy found a fakir in the bazaar
who said he would deal with it.
He'd helped British women before
but of course there were risks.
But Dorothy was willing to take them.
To give up her child?
Yes. But Alec wouldn't let her go through with it.
That was the kind of man he was, decent.
But he couldn't divorce Gladys
because he was a Catholic.
