Episode 2.1
5 May 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Series 1 ended in a cliffhanger. It looked like Tom might be facing a personal loss. It looks like his relationship with Ellie is rather shaky.

It was a diversion by Irish terrorists, their attack was a high ranking political target.

The Spooks team also target a wanted Serbia war criminal who attacked a military convoy.

Zoe needs to go undercover in a video shop to get close to someone in league with the wanted Serb. Tom also finds out that someone on the inside has been passing on information to them and the next target could be catastrophic.

There are some nicely shot scenes here at the start of the episode and some nicely constructed action scenes. They look good even 16 years later.

Benedict Cumberbatch makes an early appearance as a spy who is sent out to the cold.
