Next Episode of Close to the Enemy is
Close to the Enemy follows intelligence officer Captain Callum Ferguson, whose last task for the Army is to ensure that a captured German scientist, Dieter, starts working for the British RAF on urgently developing the jet engine. With the background of the emerging Cold War, it is clear to all that it's crucial for British national security that cutting-edge technology is made available to the armed forces as quickly as possible. Callum uses unorthodox methods in his attempt to convince Dieter to work with the British and eventually a friendship develops between the two men, but soon tensions arise as all is not as it seems.....
Kathy and Callum successfully prevent a war criminal from leaving the country, but is he too important to prosecute? Callum is instructed to get rid of all information pertaining to individuals of interest, while also having to court the imperious Frau Bellinghausen - who holds the key to an infamous perfume.
Callum juggles these new demands as his relationship with Rachel intensifies and becomes more compromising. Victor and Kathy make the most of his distractions to find whatever his department has been hiding.
As Callum realises he isn't the free agent he has always believed himself to be, his dealings inside the hotel bring him closer to Harold, an ex-Foreign Office official and hotel regular, who reveals some startling truths about the outbreak of the war.
Meanwhile, the friendship between Dieter and Callum is threatened when word gets out that Dieter may have stood by as innocents in labour camps perished under the rule of the Nazi party.
While Dieter is seemingly helping the British to achieve their jet engine goals, Victor comes to Callum with proof that Dieter isn't innocent of war crimes. After thwarting Victor and Kathy's attempts to recover information by stealth, Callum goes some way to regaining their favour by helping Kathy get access to a useful German prisoner, Birgit Mentz. He advises Kathy to try employing his own tactics to get Birgit to open up. Callum thinks he can get the proof that Harold requires to expose the British government's wartime secrets, and also keep Victor and Rachel close to him at the hotel. But can he have it all?
Victor, still struggling to cope with the effects of the war, tries to expose the activities of Callum's team.
Those around him choose not to pay attention and force him to seek medical help. He escapes from the hospital psychiatric ward at an opportune moment, while Callum and Rachel take advantage of Alex's upcoming business trip. When Callum's superiors try to stop Victor, his life is threatened.
Dieter finally tells Callum the truth about his past in Germany. The tables have turned, and it is now Dieter who tries to win over Callum. Harold similarly feels despair for failing to live up to Callum's expectations of him. Can these two men convince Callum of their integrity?
The drama series concludes. Preparations for Dieter's wedding are underway. Employing the same tactics as Callum, Kathy finally confronts Bergit about her activities, forcing her to realise that her options are limited. Meanwhile, Harold makes a decisive move as he struggles to cope with feelings of inadequacy. Concerned that he is caught in a marital game, Callum forces Rachel to admit her true feelings for him. As ever, Victor remains haunted by the effects of the war and the people who will get away with crimes they committed in the name of war. He ultimately learns that there are some people who are too important to prosecute, no matter what they have done.
