Margery was with Hitler on his birthday when he was presented with the Tiger Tank. As a singer she was able to remember some critical technical data as a song which was sent back to Bletchley Park for decoding via her controller Hardy Amies (John Moulder Brown will star with Fry in this one as well) and to the delight of Churchill who then ordered the capture of one. She had a narrow escape whilst hiding British airmen and was eventually caught by the Gestapo on the personal orders of Goering after being constantly shadowed by SS thug von Müller who eventually tortured her. Stephen Fry will be Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering! Udo Kier was previously attached to star as Hitler.

  1. You've intrigued me to look up the book! If I like the book, I'll watch the film. :) I'm heading over to audibles now. I need a good book to listen to as I drive. I'm currently reading The Poet and it already brought me to tears twice.

  2. Stephen Fry has been busy! "Summer Night, Winter Moon" -- her husband and his best friend, eh? That sets off my gaydar! "The Spy in the Eagle's Nest" sounds good. He'll make a good Hermann Goering, I'm sure.

    If that's a recent photo of Stephen Fry, it looks like he's lost weight and had a face lift. He doesn't look nearly so old and pouchy as he did the last time I saw a photo of him.

    1. He has a lot of projects that never get finished or started in the case of movies, sadly.
      I have a talent of finding photos in which stars look good even if they naturally don't LOL

  3. The agent's name M16 reminds me of the name of the chief detective agency James Bond.
    Could this detective be a colleague of James Bond?
