A Call To Spy tells the untold story of Winston Churchill's Special Operations Executive - the SOE. The historical drama delves into the real-world history of a collection of women trained as spies during World War II. With little training, and a lot of pressure on their shoulders, these newly initiated covert operatives were relied on to help turn the tide against the Nazis.

The story is told though the eyes of Vera Atkins (played by Stana Katic), a real-life German-Jewish Romanian who was part of the team who evacuated Poland's Enigma code breakers.

The dramatic retelling of her life story explains how she was inducted into the SOE, and indeed how she helped the British and their allies against Hitler.

Throughout A Call to Spy, Vera was aided by her intelligence officer back at HQ - Maurice Buckmaster (played by Linus Roache).

Express.co.uk recently caught up with Roache on his experience telling this incredible story, and the pressure behind playing the man who had it all figured out.

Roache began the conversation over Zoom by praising the real-life women in the SOE in the 1930s.
