    Sky Movies wrote, "the specially written musical piece, Prelude, which has a vital part to play in the plot's unfolding, is hauntingly appealing. But too much talk tends to spoil the script's surprises"; and The Radio Times noted, "nuance was not Donald Wolfit's strong suit, but he had presence and power in spades. He totally dominates this story with a bluster and conviction that keeps an uninspiring tale of the hunt for a Second World War traitor from falling flat on its face"; while TV Guide concluded, "this is an offbeat espionage whodunit with some nervy moments."
