Classic British spy drama
"Groundbreaking drama" -The Independent (U.K.)
This gritty, realistic police procedural focuses on the Special Branch of London’s Metropolitan Police—a force dedicated to stopping terrorist activities and countering espionage in the nation’s capital. With an exceptional cast that includes George Sewell (Get Carter), Patrick Mower (Callan), and Richard Leech (Doctor Who), Special Branch is a suspenseful ride through the underbelly of Britain’s international affairs.
In the role of DCI Alan Craven, George Sewell provides a committed but world-weary epicenter to a dangerous, ever-shifting landscape of spies, assassins, surveillance, and sudden death. Working with a team of officers that includes the younger and brasher DCI Tom Haggerty (Mower), the veteran cop confronts explosive issues with life-or-death consequences.
