    The cloak-and-dagger stuff, however, proves terribly mild, and the romance stiff and hackneyed.

    Spies of Warsaw starts off as a complex spy drama and feels like it finishes as a less complex romance drama.

    Throughout, Spies delivers the vicarious pleasures of old-fashioned spy movies with the bold contemporary frankness of the best of cable.

    The story wanders slowly and aimlessly when it should be tumbling toward a climax. It’s a ride on flat terrain.

    Most of the performances are superb, beginning with Tennant, of course. He is so well cast and skilled that he's able to sustain credibility despite some of the gaps in the script.

    Director Coky Giedroyc leaves enough dramatic headroom that when forces draw together toward the end, with one last frontier to cross, he can deliver what feels like pulp-fiction thrills without getting loud or fancy.

    It’s an enjoyable, straightforward espionage tale without a lot of twists or extra layers.

    Durst’s books all offer the same engaging elements that the BBC makes such excellent use of in this two-part miniseries: The claustrophobic lifeboat atmosphere of a society teetering toward its doom.

    Despite its historic gravitas and scrupulous attention to period detail, Spies of Warsaw never really ignites.

    Spies of Warsaw is a deeply romantic, intricately plotted, and well-structured character study.
