Next week, Channel 7 will premiere new UK Cold War spy thriller drama, Harry Palmer: The Ipcress File.
In the series, Joe Cole plays the role originally made famous by Michael Caine of former smuggler turned hesitant but competent spy Harry Palmer, who is dispatched to 1962 Berlin with the mission to recover a missing nuclear physicist. As you do…

When they got back to London, they gave the unconventional spymaster Dalby an order to find a missing nuclear physicist.
His calm and ambitious agent Jean makes a sharp observation that leads to the identification of a connection to an inmate named Palmer, who is promptly recruited to retrieve the boffin.
Lucy Boynton and Tom Hollander will also feature in the new series.
