Spies of Warsaw is based on Alan Furst's acclaimed novel and adapted by Emmy-winning writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. "Doctor Who" star David Tennant and Janet Montgomery ("Black Swan," "Entourage") are cast in this thrilling spy story set in Poland, Paris, London and Berlin in the years leading up to the Second World War.
In the mini-series, French and German intelligence operatives are locked in a life-and-death struggle in the espionage arena. At the French embassy, a decorated war hero of the 1914 war, Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (Tennant), is sucked into a world of abduction, betrayal and international intrigue from the diplomatic salons to the back alleys of Warsaw. Mercier simultaneously finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest.
Spies of Warsaw combines historical, intelligent narratives, interlaced with flawed and compelling characters. The cast includes Anton Lesser (Dramaville's "The Hour") as Doctor Lapp, Richard Lintern (Dramaville's "White Heat") as Colonel Lessard, and many more!
