Gay & London & Spies — Oh, My!

The BBC miniseries “London Spy” may not have won any BAFTA awards last night in London, but it is well worth your watching. This five-part program (click here to watch in its entirety) begins as the story of two young men: Danny (Ben Whishaw)—gregarious, hedonistic, and romantic—falls in love with Alex (Edward Holcroft)—asocial, enigmatic, and brilliant. Just as they discover how perfect they are for each other, Alex disappears. Danny then finds Alex’s body. They lived very different lives: Danny is from a world of clubbing and youthful excess; Alex, it turns out, works for the Secret Intelligence Service. Danny decides to fight for the truth, utterly ill-equipped to take on the world of espionage.
