Film and TV newsite Indiewire have selected wartime drama series Spies Of Warsaw as one of their highlights of the week. Critic Leonard Maltin has highlighted the miniseries, which stars David Tennant as a French espionage agent, in the site's What's On TV column.
Mid-week Spies of Warsaw will arrive on our shores from across the pond. BBC America’s latest Dramaville entry stars David Tennant as Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier, a French military attaché assigned to
a rather precarious time in the world. It’s German pre-invasion, (beginning in
1933) tensions are high as the world stage seems to be teetering. While the
players attend formal functions at night dangerous close encounters bode ill.
All is definitely not well. Based on Alan Furst’s novel, and adapted into
this two-part miniseries by veteran screenwriters Dick Clement and Ian La
Frenais, Spies has a ring of truth about it and at times feels like a
peak behind the curtain; what was known when and who knew it. Who took action,
who didn’t and why.
Spies Of Warsaw also stars Janet Mongomery, Marcin Dorocinski, Burn Gorman and Ellie Haddington. It was filmed on location in Poland and directed by Coky Giedroyc. It is a joint production betwwen BBC Four, BBC America, TV Poland and ArteFrance.
The series premières at 9pm/8c on Dramaville on BBC America on Wednesday 3rd April and concludes the following Wednesday at the same time.
