Spy: Series One
Thursday 11th October 2012
Starring BAFTA Award winners Darren Boyd (Green Wing) and Robert Lindsay (My Family), the hilarious smash-hit comedy Spy: Series One is available to own on DVD from 5th November 2012 from Channel 4 DVD.
Spy is the story of Tim Elliot (Boyd), a single father trying to win back the respect and affections of his horribly precocious nine year old son, Marcus, in the wake of his divorce. However when his luck dramatically turns and he is accidentally recruited as a trainee spy for MI5, his one chance at proving that he is not a complete loser must be kept under wraps.
James Bond meets Mr Magoo, Tim bumbles and fumbles his way through secret missions under the supervision of his irrepressible, hip flask-swigging MI5 boss, The Examiner (Lindsay), who teaches the recruits his own unorthodox approach to the espionage game. But will Tim be able to sort through the chaos of his life (including his caustic ex-wife, Judith, her enthusiastic new boyfriend Philip and his anti-social friend Chris) and demonstrate his competence as a father... all whilst saving the world?
From the brilliantly funny mind of British Comedy Award winner Simeon Goulden (Secret Diary of a Call Girl, The Armstrong and Miller Show) and featuring a show-stealing performance from the young Jude Wright as acid-tongued Marcus, the hugely funny Spy is a laugh-out-loud comedy for all the family.
