Logan makes a big mistake

Logan infiltrates a high-stakes social event.

Featuring: Tom Davis (Logan) & Kayode Ewumi (Huxley).


It's 007 meets The Naked Gun in a silly sitcom about a group of spies, led by co-writer Tom Davis as in-yer-face agent Logan. Subtle it's not - sample line: "Your penis is hanging out" (and it is) - this does have a kind of manic energy that's impossible to deny. First mission: what is the secret of "Abacus"?

Jonathan Wright, The Guardian, 5th March 2018
