Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Part Six Smiley Sets a Trap
Part Seven Flushing Out the Mole [final episode]
I won't spoil the ending for anyone who's still not seen it or is waiting for the film (out today), but I guessed the mole correctly. Go me. Also, interesting -- and very like this intelligent, slow-paced series -- that the mole was revealed near the start of the final episode, with the rest dealing with the aftermath. Most series, both lesser and equal, would have pushed the Big Twist Revelation to the end and rushed through any after effects, but that's not in Tinker Tailor's style. Brilliant.
