Superb story line, acting , sexy, dangerous. Spy story reborn!
17 November 2015 | by adamk-18See all my reviews

The main reason for me to watch this was the name Ben Whishaw. I was expecting great quality and interesting plot, but instead I get quality of the plot out of this world. For a pretty long time I did not find really the highest quality of... well, everything in the movie or TV series. There were few and only a few. London Spy proves that making GREAT TV series is still possible. Love, sex, drugs, money, MI6 and few other typical parts of a spy story here is made of the highest standard. I did not thought that making another spy story is possible or rather is possible to make one that still grabs you so you can't stop watching it. Ben Whishaw as always was great, but not exactly. He, somehow showed yet another great side of he's talent. He just showed me that He is the real deal star, he was brilliant. I can honestly say that we did not have seen yet what a great actor he is. Seeing Him in London Spy I can honestly say He's on the top of His game and yet He will still surprise us. Great cast Jim Broadbent looks like He really was working for MI6. Great actor! Edward Holcroft plays an agent working who knows for who, plays with such a reality I would love to meet guy like him but I would be scared of Him too. Superb story line, superb casting, I can't wait for the next Monday to see the new episode.
