A Christmas Airing For The Spies Of Warsaw?

Possibly sneaking its way onto TV this Christmas is the wartime drama The Spies of Warsaw – starring the Tenth Doctor David Tennant and Janet Montgomery.

Tenth Doctor Who David TennantDelving into the murky, kill or be killed world of TV scheduling, Polish TV website Wirtualnemedia suggests that the drama will not be shown in Poland until 2013 – after its UK premiere, stating:

The reason for the transmission delay is that ‘Spies’ must first be aired on British channel BBC Four. They plan their broadcast only in the vicinity of this Christmas. It is not known in which month next year TVP1 will show the series.

Originally the serial, adapted for television from the Alan Furst novel by Porridge scribes Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais and filmed in Poland, was to air this month, with the DVD release still scheduled for release in October.

At the Lords of Time convention earlier this month, Tennant who plays Jean-Francois Mercier in the serial commented that he thought the show would air in January 2013.

The UK transmission date has yet to be confirmed.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
