A Missed Opportunity

I've been keen to watch the recent version of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, having been a huge fan of the original BBC series. So when I realised it was one of the in-flight movies on the way to Hong Kong I was more than a little pleased. Unfortunately said flight took off at 7.30 this morning, which means I surfaced from my dreams around 4.45. This in turn resulted in me nodding off mid-way through Gary Oldman's bravura turn as Smiley.

And it wasn't because I was bored, let me assure you.

So now my next opportunity to view the thing will be, I assume, on the way back next Tuesday. I hope I'll be reasonably awake the next time around.
