Don’t miss as DAVID TENNANT (Doctor Who, Broadchurch, Fright Night) returns to BBC AMERICA in SPIES OF WARSAW, presented by Dramaville *** Premiering Wednesday Apr 3 at 9/8c *** only on BBC America
Adapted by renowned Emmy®-winning writing team Dick Clement (Across the Universe, Tracey Takes On…) and Ian La Frenais (Across the Universe, Tracey Takes On…) and based on New York Times Bestselling author Alan Furst’s acclaimed novel, SPIES OF WARSAW is a thrilling spy story set in Poland, Paris and London in the years leading up to the Second World War.
"Try not to be caught, because technically-speaking, you’re a spy and could be shot."
The drama finds French and German intelligence operatives locked in a life-and-death struggle. At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (DAVID TENNANT), a decorated hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of Warsaw.
At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (JANET MONTGOMERY, Made in Jersey, Black Swan, Entourage), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest.
