An MI6 defector has his appearance altered by the K.G.B. and is sent back to Britain to retrieve top-secret documents.
Philip Kimberley (Sir Michael Caine) was originally inspired by British defector Kim Philby, a fictional version of whom is killed in the opening scenes of Caine's The Fourth Protocol (1987).
It's not everyone gets to see his own funeral.
In the middle of the film the Admiral is driven home. He starts by going east down Whitehall towards Trafalgar Square, though he actually lives in on the Middlesex side of the Thames by Kew railway bridge, as is clear from the name of the adjacent sailing club.
