They've done it again. What began as an almost amateurish program (seasons 1 and 2) has developed into a first-class, tension-filled series with addictive properties as one theme runs through many episodes. One a night just wasn't enough! And one season wasn't enough...I had to order season 7 while still watching season 6 to avoid being Spooksless. Now I'm awaiting the release of season 8. While I haven't been happy about some of the cast changes along the way, and I'm getting a bit tired of the anti-American jibes, Seasons 6 and 7 are definitely items to add to your dvd collection. In the words of the Radio Times, Spooks is a "cracking adventure series."

I was expecting Spooks to run out of steam by series 6 but boy was I wrong! Series 6 was different to previous series in that it focused on one main story throughout and brought in other elements along the way. Consistently excellent with suspense, so many twists and turns and the now compulsory death(s) of main characters Spooks series 6 ranks as one of the best TV programmes of 2007. I think the makers of 24 in the US should really take a look at this series after their poor last season of Jack Bauers adventures.
Highly recommended.

The three-star rating applies to a comparison with past series of this programme, not to television dramas in general.
This series takes different approach to those in the past - the story line is continuous, as opposed to self-contained episodes in the past. However the meaning of each episode is cumulative and so to understand what is happening in a current episode one has to have a good memory of what had happened in previous ones. This does create extra complexity, which for me is great, but could be irritating for others.
The major flaw in this series is that in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience, there is a greater emphasis on thrills and spills which sacrifices script quality and leads to very implausible situations and cliche endings. For example, in one episode Adam Carter is ordered to carry out "soft" surveillance on a subject going into a store. He does this by standing outside its front window, looking inside, with ear-piece in full-view. A 10 year-old could figure out this is not good spying! In terms of cliche, in one episode Harry does a lot of illegal things but is able to keep his job by turning up some dirty stuff on the Home Secretary - hardly original or exciting.
I loved previous series for intelligent script-writing, the raising of complicated problems with no easy answers, and presenting ethical dilemmas, again with no easy solutions. A lot of this has been lost in the search of thrills. The programme continues to be very enjoyable to watch, but I hope the producers reverse the latest trend in the upcoming series if they don't want the programme to become just like any other ho-hum thriller that does not require an IQ to watch.

Spooks: Complete BBC Series 6 [DVD] [2007]Spooks just gets better, plenty of twists and surprises.You really need to keep focused on the plot as they are never completely straightforward.It is very difficult to watch just one episode as you can't wait to see what happens next.Ros plays a particularly good part in this series, very different to Cold Feet! Not for the faint hearted, this series is gripping,frightening in parts but very enjoyable.

"I loved previous series for intelligent script-writing, the raising of complicated problems with no easy answers, and presenting ethical dilemmas, again with no easy solutions. A lot of this has been lost in the search of thrills."

I'd have to agree there. I can't say that Spooks is BAD nowadays - I mean, I still watch it and enjoy it most of the time. But at the beginning there was more to it, without a doubt. The script writing was so, SO tight, and there was such a true-to-life feel about the whole thing that it was utterly compelling.

Also, I really appreciated what I'll call the 'Le Carre angle'. By this, I mean that early episodes and series painted an intense and sometimes bleak picture of the struggle to maintain a sane personal life among people who 'serve their country' in this way, but did it all in a low-key, non-sensationalised and sometimes gently humorous style. In this series (and the two before that), the same themes have been scaled up to silly, epic proportions, and the result often lands somewhere between Hollywood schmaltz and Brazilian soap.

In fact, to an extent this principle applies to the whole show: the writers have decided to (or been forced to) 'big it up', much to the show's detriment. Now the plots, and some of the action sequences, are assuming a Mission Impossible-esque feeling, and sadly, this replaces a truly unique viewing experience with a merely rather enjoyable one.

Last negative thing I'll say: the scene where Ros basically gets up and walks away from her own casket was one of the most implausible things I've seen on screen for some time, and really beneath the writers. At that point, I nearly gave up on the whole enterprise.
