The two-part British miniseries Fall From Grace was set in the fifth year of WWII. To mislead the Germans as to the date and location of the invasion of France, Col. Sir Henry Ridley (James Fox) leaves an elaborate trail of false clues, not least of which is the fabrication of an entire "battle front." Swept up in the intrigue is novice British spy Lady Deirdre Seabright (Patsy Kensit), who slowly and painfully came to the realization that she would be expendable once Ridley's plan reached full fruition. Posting a total running time of 180 minutes, Fall From Grace was originally telecast in England in 1994 and in the United States not long after.
