The cast also includes Paul Ritter (Quantum Of Solace), Shaun Dooley (Misfits), Chloe Pirrie (Black Mirror), Victoria Hamilton (What Remains), Jonathan Aris (Sherlock) and Judy Parfitt (Little Dorrit).

The Game will tell the story of the invisible war fought by MI5 as they battle to protect the nation from the threats of the Cold War. When a KGB defector reveals the existence of a devastating Soviet plot, the charismatic but paranoid head of MI5 assembles a secret team to investigate.

Each episode will see the team uncover a new traitor to investigate, another piece of the jigsaw and another mission into the unknown. With Cold War tensions at a terrifying peak, how far are they prepared to go to keep ahead of the great game?
