As Doctor Who fans jump into the second half of season seven, and eagerly await the return of David Tennant in the 50th anniversary special, BBC America will premiere Tennant's new espionage mini-series, Spies of Warsaw, this Wednesday (April 3rd) at 9pm. From BBC: "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 (Janet Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest." Worst date ever? But seriously, this show sounds dramatic and interesting. Catch it this Wednesday and let me know what you think.

  1. I saw it on the BBC and it was really enjoyable, although I preferred the first part to the second - it had more suspense. Some people found it slow going, but that's what I (a Tinker, Tailor fan) appreciated most about it.
