The Game, an intense new espionage drama from Toby Whithouse (Being Human, Doctor Who) is coming to BBC America.

‘A complex invisible war is being fought by skilled spies trained in the high stakes world of covert espionage. In 1972 London, tensions are at a terrifying peak as the world’s super powers plot against their enemies. The threat: a dangerous and deadly Soviet plot, designed to bring Britain to its knees, dubbed Operation Glass.’ And so begins The Game, a series that weaves character development with the tension and thriller we expect from an espionage series.

Assassins, defections, deadly secrets and and a sinister Soviet woven together at a time when espionage was its peak. The Game premieres Wednesday, November 5th (10/9C) as part of BBC America’s Dramaville. Follow the jump for more.

Glenn has accumulated a wealth of genre cred throughout his career and, especially in 1982’s The Challenge (a criminally underrated martial arts/noir from John Frankenheimer), has shown himself to be quite capable of being believably in action sequences). The role of Stick should fit him like a glove. Follow the jump for more.
