The Secret Agent
An adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s classic 1907 novel, this new three-part BBC series tells a dark tale of espionage, terrorism and intimate betrayal set in Victorian London. Starring Toby Jones (Captain America, Wayward Pines) as Verloc and Vicky McClure (Line of Duty, This is England) as his loyal wife Winnie, Verloc’s seedy Soho shop hides his role as an agent of the Russian government. Angry that Britain harbours violent anarchists, the Russians coerce Verloc into planting a bomb that will provoke the authorities into cracking down on these extremists. Caught between the Russians and the British police, Verloc drags his unsuspecting family into a tragic terror plot.
The Secret Agent begins Sunday, 17 July at 9pm on BBC One.
