BBC Four controller Richard Klein was quoted in The Hollywood Reporter on April 4,2012 talking about Spies of Warsaw. "I think David Tennant playing Mercier and Janet Montgomery as Anna is such an exciting way to explore Furst's hugely convincing central characters, and I am delighted that Ian and Dick have produced such an enthralling script.” The writers he mentions Ian La Frenais and Dick Clement both wom Emmy's as writers on Tracy Ullmna's Tracy Takes On.
The article described the plot:
"Tennant is cast as a military attache at the French embassy drawn
into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic
salons and back alleys of Warsaw. He is involved in a complicated love affair with a Parisian lawyer played by Montgomery."
The BBC teamed up with TV chef Jaimie Oliver's production company Fresh Pictures for this mini-series, this will be the first drama for their company.
