First look: The Ipcress File

ITV has released the first look at its new version of The Ipcress File, starring Joe Cole as iconic spy Harry Palmer.

Cole stars alongside Lucy Boynton and Tom Hollander in the six-part drama. Filming is currently underway in Liverpool.

The Ipcress File is set in Berlin and London during the 1960’s.

Harry Palmer is a British army sergeant on the make in Berlin. In this newly partitioned city, a sharp working-class young man with sophisticated tastes can make a lot of money – until the law catches up and it all comes crashing to a halt.

Harry finds himself sentenced to eight years in a grim military jail in England, all his prospects abruptly torn away.

But his impressive network and efficiency have not gone unnoticed, and a gentleman from British intelligence has a proposal. To avoid prison, Harry Palmer will become a spy. And his first case will be The Ipcress File.
