David Tennant did a nice job. This spy yarn has an authentic feel. The idea in "Spies" is that they might still exist undercover within the Nazi government and be turnable into double agents. Also, there is a nice revelation about political realities in that time and place that comes about because of their on-again-off-again romance, and I liked this twist even though I saw it coming.

Personally I find his books overly detailed, his writing wooden and the immense array of poorly developed characters that come and go non-compelling.

Jean-Francois Mercier works under the cover of darkness desperately trying to work out what the Nazi regime intends for Europe. 46min.
The naming of Skarbek is an homage on the part of novelist Alan Furst, on whose book this series is based. The Germans are suspicious of Uhl but he dies before they can arrest him.
They do ...
And there was romance and I, too, remain madly in love with Anna Skarbeck (sp). Presumably the BBC felt David Tennant's native Scots accent (or a perhaps an unstudied attempt at French) would be more jarring than misplaced English. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.Travelling or based outside United States?

Subtitles. Turns out this is another name for the Combat League founded by Otto Strasser, a Nazi I had heard of. January 9, 2013.
Chatty scenes that get repetitive break up the action, as does the back and forth between Warsaw and Paris.

The characters talk about something called the "Black Front," a term that I somehow had not heard before. I am more interested in the history than in the love story, but I can understand why somebody might enjoy the chemistry between the leads. So having people always speak English with various accents is not realistic - but it does help the viewer keep track of which country each person is supposed to be from.

To me, weird little cliches like that are what moved the piece from great to "pretty good". Spies of Warsaw is a British television series in which a Deuxième Bureau intelligence agent (spy) poses as a military attaché at the French embassy in Warsaw, and finds himself drawn into the outbreak of World War II..
Perhaps that sounded more romantic or tragic to the writers, or maybe they thought viewers wouldn't get that flu can be serious.
I'm in two minds about that - of course in real life people wouldn't speak with accents from the countries they were from, they would simply speak in that language - this would then require subtitles. Episode 1. Spies of Warsaw Season 1 (223) ... Buy Episode 1 HD $2.99.
As I say, the details are authentic. Okay, the lead character works for the French, doing his best to provide accurate intelligence on German intentions.

Against the backdrop of betrayal and clandestine operations, there is a love story involving a Polish socialite named Anna Skarbek, (Janet Montgomery) and a French spy named Jean Francois Mercier (David Tennant). Add to Watchlist.
It turns out this is actually a mixture of "Spies of Warsaw" with bits of "The Polish Officer" thrown in, but they did blend the two in a way that fit very well. TV-14.
This movie trivializes the typical spy movie because no one had mixed motives and personal acts to grind (i.e., no one had German sympathies).
In any case I am a confirmed reader of Alan Furst thanks to running across this TV movie. David Tennant did not sound French so I had to keep reminding myself he was with them.
Of course, his bosses are not agreeable to all the risks he takes, and he takes many that cost people their lives.
One odd thing, and a spoiler warning, a character was supposed to have had influenza, very appropriate historically, but for some reason they changed it here to consumption.
