“Spies” Is Probably Worth Your Attention

This two-part series beginning tonight on BBC America is based on an Alan Furst novel. Alessandra Stanley writes: ‘“Spies of Warsaw,” which begins in 1937, is set amid candelabras and barbed-wire fences in Poland, France and Germany, and brackets Polish demimondaines, German industrialists, SS officers, Bolsheviks, Jewish refugees and French military officers. Yet somehow the pace is sedate, and the supposedly exotic characters cozily familiar.’ David (Dr. Who) Tennant stars.
