Explanatory comment in closing credits of final episode: "The Ashenden stories were based on W. Somerset Maugham's experiences as a spy in World War I. Many of them were destroyed because of the Official Secrets Act. After the book's publication, Maugham never again made his home in England. He died in France in 1965."
