AIRDATE: Monday 9 November 2015 at 9.00pm on BBC Two

Episode 1 (of 4)

Cast: Ben Whishaw, Edward Holcroft, Jim Broadbent,

London Spy is a thriller that starts with a chance romance between two people from very different worlds – one from the headquarters of the Secret Intelligence Service, the other from a world of clubbing and youthful excess.

Danny (Ben Whishaw) – down on his luck, broke, working a dead end job, falls for the anti-social, enigmatic and brilliant Alex (Edward Holcroft). Just as the two of them realize that they’re perfect for each other, Alex is found dead in circumstances that Danny is sure have been staged.

The series follows Danny’s descent into the dangerous world of global espionage – a world for which he’s hopelessly ill equipped. He must decide whether he’s prepared to fight for the truth, or whether the risks to his own life are too great.

London Spy is written by Tom Rob Smith, produced by Guy Heeley and directed by Jakob Verbruggen. Executive producers are Tom Rob Smith, Juliette Howell, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner for Working Title Television, and Polly Hill, Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning, and Hilary Salmon, Head of Drama, England, for BBC Two.

London Spy is produced by Working Title Television for BBC Two.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
