Juliet Shaw was severely injured in the attempt on their lives and is recovering in hospital. The third planned attack - having two commercial airliners collide in mid-air - is foiled by Zaf at the regional air control center but MI-5 finds itself nearly alone fighting the forces within and outside the British government who are in effect staging a coup d'etat. As the noose starts to tighten - the Home Secretary cannot get in to see the Prime Minister and Harry Pearce is arrested and detained, as is a nationally known advocate of civil liberties - Jo Portman tries to get the Prime Minister's son into London so he can tell his father what is going on. MI-6 agent Ros Myers, whose father is one of the conspirators, has been helping Adam with information but Adam detains her her in the hopes that she will throw her lot in with them.

Did You Know?


The poetry given by Malcolm to Harry at the end of the episode [to be read at Colin's funeral], 'Comrades mine and I in their midst, and their memory ever to keep for the dead I loved so well' is by Walt Whitman, from When Lilacs Last In The Dooryard Bloom'd. Whitman's sexuality is often discussed alongside his poetry. Though biographers continue to debate his sexuality, he is usually labeled as either homosexual or bisexual. Malcolm, after Colin's death in the previous episode, is distraught at the loss of his friend - the choice of poem intimates a closer relationship than friendship between Malcolm and Colin.

The conspirators were attempting to crash two planes together by giving them false air traffic control commands. All airliners are fitted with TCAS, a system which would independently warn the pilots of an imminent collision resulting in them taking evasive action regardless of ATC instructions. See more »
