The situation is complicated by Max's estranged son, Harry, who has followed his father into the espionage world and as the series opens may have died in the line of duty.

It wasn’t just the RAF that got a stiff breeze up its skirts. That necessary war also necessitated the dismantling of a great many snobberies and prejudices in all the armed forces. Gay men, who had spent a lifetime dissembling, were found particularly useful for the SOE, and it was remembered (most probably by a <...> - by Observer (UK) [Euan Ferguson]
