First Image: Ben Whishaw In BBC Two’s ‘London Spy’

The first image from BBC Two’s upcoming Ben Whishaw fronted drama series London Spy has been released.

Penned by Child 44 author Tom Rob Smith and directed by The Fall’s Jakob Verbruggen, London Spy tells the story of Danny (Ben Whishaw), a young gay spy who is somewhat ill-equipped for the game of espionage. The MI6 officer soon falls in love with the Alex, but when he disappears Danny must decide whether he’s prepared to fight for the truth.

In addition to Ben Whishaw, London Spy also stars Edward Holcroft (Wolf Hall) as Alex, Danny’s anti-social and enigmatic love interest; Charlotte Rampling (Dexter) as Frances, a figure from deep within the traditions of British espionage; and Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter) as Scottie, Danny’s (Ben Whishaw) close confidant.

The image shows Ben Whishaw, best known for playing Q in the James Bond films Skyfall and the upcoming Spectre, The Hour) in character as series lead Danny.
