    David Tennant didn’t have to “play” a Russian – he could have “played” a British MI6 spy codename JJ, namely Bill Fairclough aka Edward Burlington. Both Alexander Litvinenko and Bill Fairclough worked for Intelligence investigating, infiltrating & tackling international organised crime & both were poisoned as noted in the news article in TheBurlingtonFiles website dated 23 November 2022. For more about this attempted murder, visit the website and read Beyond Enkription, a non-fiction spy thriller about Bill Fairclough’s life when he was being hunted from London to Haiti.
