London Spy (Ben Whishaw/Jim Broadbent) - Preview

London Spy: Series 1

Preview by Jack Foley

LONDON Spy begins with a chance romance between two people from two very different walks of life; one from the high-powered ranks of investment banking and the other from a world of clubbing and youthful excess.

Their love story quickly unravels, however, when the reclusive banker disappears under suspicious circumstances, exposing his real identity as a spy and forcing his lover down a dark path in order to reveal the truth.

The stirring five-part mystery, from acclaimed best-selling author Tom Rob Smith (Child 44, Doctors), stars BAFTA© winner Ben Whishaw (Spectre, The Danish Girl) in a career-defining performance as Danny, the innocent, young romantic drawn into a dangerous world of espionage.

He is joined by Academy Award© winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Cloud Atlas), who is Danny’s friend and mentor; Scottie, Emmy© nominee and Academy Award© nominee Charlotte Rampling (Broadchurch, 45 Years), who is Alex’s mother; Frances.

Newcomer Edward Holcroft (Wolf Hall, Kingsman: The Secret Service) rounds out the impressive cast as Danny’s friend, Alex.

London Spy is available on DVD from Monday, May 2, 2016, courtesy of Universal Pictures (UK).
