Product Description

All 10 episodes from the fourth series of the television espionage drama, following a team of officers in MI5. In this series, as the team members of Section B are attending Danny's funeral, the church is rocked by the shockwave of a percussive blast. A bomb has exploded in a nearby market area and an American-based group calling itself Shining Dawn is claiming responsibility for the atrocity. Demanding the release of their incarcerated leader, the terrorists threaten to detonate a bomb, each designed to cause the maximum number of casualties, in central London every ten hours until their demands are met. A team of American agents with experience of dealing with Shining Dawn is brought in to The Grid to assist Section B. Among them is a English woman and former Washington agent, Juliet Shaw (Anna Chancellor), who knows more than a few sensitive secrets about Harry's (Peter Firth) past. Episodes are: 'The Special (Part 1)'; 'The Special (Part 2)'; 'Divided They Fall'; 'Road Trip'; 'The Book'; 'The Innocent'; 'Syria'; 'The Russian'; 'The Sting'; and 'Diana'.

From Amazon.co.uk

A gripping British antidote to the counter-terrorism related drama that’s coming from the US, Spooks’ secret agents are back on superb form in this enthralling fourth season. The DVD set features all ten episodes, and there’s an immense amount to enjoy.

For those new to Spooks, it’s a drama that’s packed with twists and turns, clever characterisation, conspiracies and a generous dollop of intrigue. The Spooks of the title are counter-terrorism spies, living in a constant world of danger, and some of the edgy plotlines of this and the seasons that preceded it are testament to that.

After the minor criticisms levelled at season three, this fourth series jumps back into action, and while you won’t find spoilers here, it quickly exceeds expectations. So when the credits roll at the end of the superb final episode, there are few who won’t be checking out a release date for the fifth series.

Inevitable comparisons to 24 ensue, but the beauty of Spooks is that it has enough verve and enough ideas to carve out a niche all of its own. It’s an excellent piece of British television drama, and while its tough approach won’t engage with all, the majority are likely to find themselves hooked. And quickly. --Jon Foster

After the short lull of series three, spooks is back in full swing. The increasingly beautiful collection of spies are here pitted against far right politicians, ex-spooks, and a terrorist group with literally every human on the earth as their targets, to name just a few.

The opening two parter is one of the best TV thrillers I've ever seen and spooks continues to prove it's often better than going to the movies. Though we lose some familiar faces and gain some new ones, it avoids the get-rid-of-someone-every-two-episodes syndrome of series three.

Basically, if you want some highly rewatchable and enjoyable thrillers then this series will not disapoint.

I was really hesitant to buy Series 4 after Series 3. I thought 1 and 2 were good but started to meander as various characters were written out. Series 3 felt like all the writers went on vacation and good actors were left with ridiculous storylines.

The good news is that the show is back to its old form! If you liked series 1 and 2, the the show has found itself again and picks up the pace with improved storylines, better writing, and interesting, new characters. (Yes, the characters are a little underdevelped and the relationships rushed, but everything can't be perfect.)

Kudos to the writers!

i honestly thought that this was the best series yet.

series one and two were exceptional and series three was a let down. i think it struggled with the loss of main characters.

however, series 4 seems to start afresh, completely renewing my interest in the program. everything seems more finished, with more character development than in previous series.

it's all very slick indeed, and i can't wait to see it all again.

I recently got hooked on Spooks after catching re-runs on tv. I have just finished season 4 and my biggest complaint is that there isn't enough episodes of Spooks per series!

Each episode in season 4 was fantastic from 1-10. Martine McCutcheon was a brilliant addition to episode 1 but the best episode as you'd expect was episode 10. Season 4 sees the usual betrayals, backstabbing, power-struggles, terrorists and conspiracies that we're used to seeing with Spooks but the finale to season 4 is by far the best finale yet! I wish they'd hurry up and get season 5 on dvd as I'm getting withdrawal symptoms already!

Kudos have created two masterful series, one of which is the skillfully-written MI5 spy drama.

September 4th sees the release of series 4 on DVD, on top of the premiere transmission of series 5 on BBC1.

Series 4 begins with a controversial two-parter set around a terrorist bombing campaign around London. Initially transtmitted approximately two months after the 7/7 attacks on London, the unique acting talents and masterful plot-lines which are carried on throughout the series sparked startling parallels with the 7/7 attacks.

As a whole, this is the best series yet. Unlike series 3, only one major lead is lost, instead of the leading three of 1 and 2, who left through series 3.

The DVD contains bonus features, including interviews and never-before-seen footage which will keep you entertained for hours.

Plus, episode 10 ends the series with a traditional life-in-the-balance cliffhanger, with two leads lives in the balance.

Although this season may, at times make you feel embarrassed for the cast, it is still the best the BBC has to offer currently, far better than `reality TV' or monotonous soaps.. Some reviewers have noted the plot convolutes towards the end, this is true, however, this short-fall is far outweighed by the well acted episodes and the characters, despite not topping Tom, Danny and Zoë, are well-developed.

In all, this series it is certainly worth buying if not to watch, to fantasise about being a spy for the British government!

How do they do it. Each series is as hot as the last one; many of the issues are relevant and sometimes seem to predict events in real life. The high- risk nature of spook work means replacements are inevitable, but acting standards always stay high. Another great BBC show.

Oh my god! This series is brilliant. It is very hard to snap out of the MI5 world and get back to your living room. The new characters add to the suspense.
