    Episode 1 - The Uk is on the verge of an historic peace deal with Iran, when the team on the Grid, receive Intel that a suspected Iranian terrorists is about to carry out an attack, this man is known as Asnik. MI5 are then order to assassinate Asnik on a train in Tehran. This is where everything begins to go wrong. A deadly disease is released with the bomb blast, which has the ability to spread rapidly .Asnik survives the blast and decides to change colours by beginning to pass Intel on to MI5. However MI5 soon discover Asnik is contaminated, with the virus. Asnik is kidnapped along with Zafar Younis an MI5 officer ( Raza Jaffrey), and they all become contaminated. What will happen now Asnik, Zaf and their kidnappers have been exposed and have just hours to live unless they receive a vaccine. I like this episode as it was a brilliant way to re-instate spooks its former television glory.moreless
  • It was disappointing.

    The lead character who died should have been given a few episodes to build up a decent story arc to do his death justice. Secondly the fact that an excellent story line form last season was brought to a close with a pathetic flashback was simply rubbish. And finally, Roz betrays the team and her country but gets sent to russia to work for MI5....???? Is Spooks jumping the shark? i hope this is not a sign of things to come.
