Sky One launches another new comedy this week in the shape of Spy.
Darren Boyd plays an accidental spook, recruited by MI5 head Robert Lindsay after he mistakenly wanders into the wrong civil service recruitment interview.
Episode one is packed with gags and also features a couple of cheeky visual references to BBC One’s Spooks and the Bond films.
A lot of the laughs are provided by Jude Wright as Boyd’s keenly intelligent and wisecracking son – the pair are eerily reminiscent of My Family’s Michael and Nick.
There are some genuine laugh out loud moments and the premise offers plenty of comedy potential. One to set the Sky+ for.
SPY launches on Friday 14 October at 8.30pm on Sky 1 HD and Sky 1.
