Product Description

Tim (Darren Boyd) is a single father trying to win back the respect and affections of his precocious nine year old son, Marcus. In the hope of proving that he is not a complete loser, Time quits his dead-end job but his life changes forever when he is accidentally recruited as a trainee spy for MI5.

Supervising Tim at work is irrepressible MI5 boss, The Examiner (Robert Lindsay), who teaches the recruits his own unorthodox approach to the espionage game. Adding to the chaos of Tim's life are his acidic ex-wife Judith, her enthusiastic new boyfriend Philip, their obsessive family therapist and his anti-social best friend Chris. And is there romance of the cards with fellow agent Caitlin?

Cast and crew interviews.

From Amazon.co.uk

Television has had its fair share of reluctant and accidental spies before. But what Spy has firmly in its corner is Darren Boyd, taking the role of Tim and considerably enlivening the show. Boyd took home a BAFTA for his role, and it’s thoroughly deserved, too: in a role that could be irritating, Boyd makes it comedy gold.

The series around him is strong, too. Series one features six episodes, which introduce the concept and then proceed to have a lot of fun with it. Simeon Goulden’s scripts boast no shortage of pace and wit, and the supporting cast is terrific. Look particularly to Robert Lindsay, seemingly having far more fun here than he ever did with My Family, and Rebekah Staton as colleague and potential romance interest Caitlin

The disc release also features a selection of interviews with the cast and crew, but doesn’t dig too much deeper than that. That’s a pity, but then, given that the show wasn’t widely seen on initial broadcast, the gold here is the chance to see the first six episodes in the first place. They’re set to be watched lots of times, we suspect… --Jon Foster

This is not like the Johnny English style of hapless spy from the films. Although the main character Tim(played by Darren Boyd) has many disasters happen , this is more of an ensemble comedy with all the other characters having comedic moments. Robert Lindsay is particularly amusing as the Spy boss (the interrogator) but I think the young lad ,Jude Wright is particularly good as the rather obnoxious son who Tim is trying to get cutody of. It is one of those comedies the whole family can enjoy .

Spy was brilliant from the first episode! They have done fab job on writing a brilliantly funny family show and I have enjoyed watching it very much. Series 2 is just as good, if not better! Just keeps on getting more brilliant!
Fantastic cast and writing, and it's great for anyone to watch. Great job!

Wow there sure are some mixed reviews of Spy and I'm inclined to believe the general consensus lies somewhere in the middle. Spy defiantly has its laugh out loud moments. It's cute, witty and dry. At other times it can be a little but uninspiring and unoriginal. Overall I think there is a little bit for everyone and I'd recommend it for what it is, a light, silly show.

I tried this on the off chance, having seen some good trailers but not having Sky. Well, it is fantastic: witty, fun, dark, subversive, laugh out loud, intriguing. Robert Lindsay is back to his Exquisite wry & slapstick modes and the scripts are excellent all round. Even the little boy isn't annoying! Top notch--can't wait for the next series!

Spy is fantastic. Fast paced witty dialogue, fleshed out yet absurdest characters, sweet family issues not overdone, not stupidly smutty. All the actors are fabulous. Can't go wrong here, can't wait for series two.

This is a really funny serie packed with black houmor and full of unexpected turns.
There is nothing comparable I know. I watched it allready three times and will probably some more.
