Spies Of Warsaw Is Pick Of The Week For The Independent

David Tennant's new drama Spies Of Warsaw is the Independent's TV Pick Of The Week

The paper says:

Spies Of Warsaw

It is 1937, and Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (played with considerable dash by David Tennant), a highly decorated soldier from the First World War, is the French military attaché stationed in Poland Рand he's taking a covert interest in suspicious German tank movements across the border. You may need that information because although Dick Clement and Ian Le Frenais have made a good job of adapting the American author Alan Furst's spy novel, the background isn't made entirely clear. Janet Montgomery plays the love interest who makes Mercier's espionage activities more complicated Рshe's a lawyer attached to the League of Nations Рwhile a refreshingly unfamiliar Anglo-Polish cast deepen the authenticity.

Watch Spies Of Warsaw on BBC Four at 9pm on Wednesday 9th January. It is also being shown in Poland on Friday 11th January at 8.30pm on TVP1.
