DAVID TENNANT in SPIES OF WARSAW - Apr 3 BBC AMERICA
Don’t miss as DAVID TENNANT (Doctor Who, Broadchurch, Fright Night) returns to BBC AMERICA in SPIES OF WARSAW, presented by Dramaville *** Premiering Wednesday Apr 3 at 9/8c *** only on BBC America
Adapted by renowned Emmy®-winning writing team Dick Clement (Across the Universe, Tracey Takes On…) and Ian La Frenais (Across the Universe, Tracey Takes On…) and based on New York Times Bestselling author Alan Furst’s acclaimed novel, SPIES OF WARSAW is a thrilling spy story set in Poland, Paris and London in the years leading up to the Second World War.
“Try not to be caught, because technically-speaking, you’re a spy and could be shot.”
The drama finds French and German intelligence operatives locked in a life-and-death struggle. At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (DAVID TENNANT), a decorated hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of Warsaw.
At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (JANET MONTGOMERY, Made in Jersey, Black Swan, Entourage), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest.

Onscreen they battled to rid the universe of Daleks in a race against time, albeit years apart.
And while the time travel continues with a new doctor in the helm, for two of the actors who played him it seems there’s no time like the present.
Former Doctor Who star David Tennant and veteran actor Sylvester McCoy posed up together at the BBC Audio awards in London on Sunday night.
David Tennant is to return to the Royal Shakespeare Company to play Richard II, five years after audiences and critics hailed his performance as Hamlet.
The production headed by the former Doctor Who star leads off a winter season at the RSC that includes the world premiere of the stage adaptations of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies.
Doran said the part would be a “challenge” for Tennant. “Of course Hamlet was a challenge, it’s the Everest,” he said: “Richard II is written entirely in verse. He has no problem with verse. He breathes it, he makes it sound as if it is completely effortless.”
The artistic director said the principal challenge for Tennant’s Richard II will be “the sense of the man’s volatility, fragility; that psychology is more alien to David’s character”
