All 6 episodes of the first series of the BBC series documenting the missions of MI5 agents, aka 'the Spooks'. In 'Relationships', Zoe (Keeley Hawes) is sent to investigate when a car bomb explodes in Liverpool, killing a family planning doctor and her daughter. Tom (Matthew MacFadyen) then discovers that a well-known pro-lifer has managed to get back into the country despite being sentenced to death in Florida. 'Risk' sees Helen (Lisa Faulkner), a recent recruit, posing as Tom's wife as the pair go deep undercover to get close to a racist ringleader after the team uncover connections between senior politicians, far-right activists and the mass killing of immigrants. In 'Office Politics', Zoe is undercover attending a function at the State Consulate of Turkey when the building is stormed by Kurdish freedom fighters. When Tessa (Jenny Agutter) watches the CCTV footage from the embassy taken immediately before the siege, she is shocked to see her former secret lover, who she thought had been killed in a car crash 15 years earlier, at the scene of the crime. 'Trust' sees Tom's girlfriend Ellie (Esther Hall) running out of patience with Tom's lies, and him finally confessing his true role to her. Meanwhile, trust is wearing thin between Zoe and Tessa as the security build-up prior to a Presidential visit reveals a tangled and corrupt web of connections. In 'Friends', the media are whipped into a frenzy when an ex-MP is released from prison after serving a sentence for embezzlement. In the midst of the madness, the plot thickens when a double agent is murdered. In 'Do or Die', Tom meets up with a renowned Irish terrorist and strikes a deal to elicit crucial information. But the terrorist gang insist that they go unwatched for 30 hours in return for the information, and Pearce (Peter Firth) thinks this is a very bad idea. Meanwhile, Ellie and her daughter move in with Tom just as he unwittingly brings home a booby-trapped laptop. Will he be able to enter his maximum security home in time to defuse the bomb and save their lives?

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
1) The three disks are not numbered so its a lottery to find the disk you want. This is made more difficult by
2) A most unintuitive top menu system which had me messing about between PC and DVD player trying to figure out how to actually get to the episodes, and
3) The disks include some "interactual" software which wants to load itself on to your PC. No way!!
Hopefully, when I actually get to watch an episode, it will be worth all the aggravation, but until then, two stars is all I give it.
The content? Well it's 5 stars, of course and I've only knocked one off for the stupidity described above.
Fast-paced, great, believable characters, gripping plots. Brilliant stuff.
The one star reviews here are absolute nonsense, stick with it, It just gets better and better. Great stories, well produced and written and at the time the stories were very current and topical, and many of them stand up today. Looking forward to seeing the movie.
In short, Spooks is a show about MI-5 and the operations of Section-D the Anti-Terrorism division of the Security Services.
There is not much to dislike about this show but I will start off with the negative and then proceed to the largely positive aspects. The main gripe I have is that only around 8-10 people seem to work permanently in Section-D and between them they deal with all major security threats to the United Kingdom. Having said this I appreciate that within a TV show they need to focus on a certain number of characters and this is the main reason for this.
Overall this is a great show! Matthew MacFadyen and Peter Firth as Tom Quinn and Harry Pearce respectively are the two stand out actors in my opinion, with MacFadyen bringing a mostly serious but occasionally humorous persona to the show while Firth as the Head of Section is the authoritative and sarcastically funny figure. Harry Pearce is clearly not written as a funny man but at times some of his lines are just downright hilarious "You're a little s***e Derek, have I ever told you that?" "You've implied it enough times Harry"
The supporting characters of Danny and Zoe both come across very well and to be honest despite what I mentioned earlier I cannot find anything bad to say about this series!
Watch it! NOW!
