James Bond meets Mission Impossible action with The Naked Gun-style humour in this six-part spy spoof.
Line of Duty’s Vicky McClure plays Ruth, the harassed boss of an incompetent team of spies, including smooth-talker Logan (the show’s co-writer Tom Davis), geeky Graham (Jim Howick) and Ruth’s shifty-looking assistant Anne (Derek Riddell in a dress).
When the team are sent to stop a bomb going off in Vienna in the first of a double bill, work experience student Huxley (Kayode Ewumi) threatens to blow their cover…
Tom Davis also stars as Russian baddie Vladimir, and look out for cameos later in the series from Stephen Graham and Rob Delaney.
