Francesca Annis plays Tuppence as a fun-loving flapper with a passion for hats, while James Warwick as Tommy is all boyish charm. Following the success of Partners In Crime, a 115-minute special, The Secret Adversary was filmed in 1982 and explains how Tommy and Tuppence came to join forces. This show is still being repeated in the UK on Granada Plus and elsewhere around the world.
