Series 6 of Spooks

The new series of Spooks started last night on ABC1.  I had never watched it before, but having heard good things about it and knowing that Rupert Penry Jones (Persuasion) and Peter Firth (Northanger Abbey, The Picture of Dorian Gray) were in it, I thought it was about time that I did.

I thought it was pretty good and I think I will try to watch the rest of the series.

About this series:

SYNOPSIS

The award-winning, edge-of-your-seat spy drama is back with another white-knuckle ride through the perilous world of deadly terrorists, international cover-ups and treacherous double-agents.
Over the course of 10 hour-long episodes, Adam, Harry and the team are immersed in their most intricate operation to date as the complex relationship between the UK, Iran and the US is put under the spotlight…
But who can really be trusted under this new world order?

CAST LIST

  • Adam Carter – Rupert Penry-Jones
  • Ros Myers – Hermione Norris
  • Harry Pearce – Peter Firth
  • Jo Portman – Miranda Raison
  • Zafar Younis – Raza Jaffrey
  • Connie James – Gemma Jones
  • Juliet Shaw – Anna Chancellor
  • Malcolm Wynn-Jones – Hugh Simon
  • Home Secretary – Robert Glenister
  • Bob Hogan – Matthew Marsh
  • Ben Kaplan – Alex Lanipekun
  • Ana Bakhshi – Agni Scott
  • Dariush Bakhshi – Simon Abkarian

 

I like the idea of the same story running through a whole 10 episode series.

Spooks is very dramatic and, in the episode I watched at least, is all about life and death situations.  The great thing about it is that despite never having any down-time, it is still believable.
