I actually spotted Ben Whishaw during the filming of London, when he was shooting a scene on the platforms at London’s Paddington Station. Now we get out first proper taste of the TV drama with a trailer.
Written by Child 44 author Tom Robb Smith, in London Spy Whishaw is Danny, an outgoing and pleasure-seeking gay romantic who becomes embroiled in the world of British espionage after falling for the enigmatic Alex (Wolf Hall’s Edward Holcroft). However, when Alex disappears, Danny must decide whether he is prepared to find out what has happened to him. Charlotte Rampling and Jim Broadbent also star.
The five-part miniseries starts airing on the BBC in Britain on November 9th.
Take a look at the short trailer below.
