Well as anyone who has watched the 2nd series will know we saw the "demise" of Tom Quinn, a moment that was brilliantly well handled ensuring that the moment was both emotionally charged and action filled. Well the 3rd series picks right off at this point and answers the questions all watchers have been dying to know. Of course I am not going to tell you what happens at this point, that would be a tad unfair, but what really happens is...
Almost got you.
With Tom Quinn's demise a post is opened, more an opportunity you could say. Oliver Mace, chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee sees an opportunity to bring together 5 & 6 and gain even more control whilst Adam Carter eyes a promotion. Oliver Mace is truly brilliantly played by Tim Mcinnerny and adds a real edge of cynicism and political intrigue to the show. You can really imagine him grappling with the world's elite and intelligence community at large. This addition is crucial to the show as it shows that office of 5 doesn't exist in a vacuum.
Adam Carter is an excellent choice as a replacement for Tom. A man who grows as the series progresses and shows he clearly has had some troubled moments in his past. A man who doesn't have any problems charming his colleagues to do things they wouldn't automatically do, but underneath it all beats the heart of a man who doesn't appear to have identified his limits yet.Read more ›
Another reason why many people may have not liked this season that much is because of the fact that the three main characters have left. I personally thought that this was a good way to keep season 3 strong, just like seasons 1 and 2. It goes to show that nothing is ever boring in Spooks because the writers know how to write well in order to keep the interests of the audience.
As for the plots, I thought that all of them were excellent, and even powerful. For example, episode 5 was quite strong because it shows what lengths the secret service would go to protect our country, and how it can actually affect the emotions of the people, having to carry out assassination tasks.Read more ›
1* for the packaging though - there should be a episode overview too so you don't put the wrong DVD in adadvertantly and have to go through the rather tedious opening sequence only to find it wasn't the one you wanted.
Having said that, it remains very watchable.
off main characters, WRONG!! And I love both those shows to. Brilliant cast. Great stories. And decent length episodes allows the whole thing to breath.
Series 3 sees the introduction of Adam Carter from MI6 and his wife Fiona. Initially Adam is a bit jack-the-lad; however, his character moves to a darker place by episodes 9 and 10 that sets the scene for the later series. The only character out of place is Zoe who seems a bit lightweight.
As a late convert to Spooks, I worked sequentially back to series 3, and the later series are even better than this.

I like the Spooks series and am catching up on earlier ones that I missed, or maybe watched a long time ago and have forgotten. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Ms. Lyn Thompson
