Michael Jayston was excellent in the BBC TV Tinker Tailor as Peter Quillam....sadly he did not reprise the role in the follow-up (Smiley's People) which suffered as a result even though I think it is the stronger plot by far. He was one of my favourite actors, I saw him on stage several times.

I will get around to reading the Julian Barnes one of these days (paperback or the library in due course). Agreed with your take on Death of a Red Heroine. I think the book would have been better if shorter, as it was one of those books with several cycles before the "breakthrough" occurs. Loved all the local colour details, though.
