A grip­ping fi­nale as epic spy se­ries bows out

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TV -

about the end of an era. Satur­day marks the final episode of the tenth and final se­ries of the Bri­tish spy se­ries Spooks. As the man re­spon­si­ble for the kid­nap­ping of CIA’S deputy-di­rec­tor, Harry (Peter Firth, pic­tured) is handed over for de­por­ta­tion to the US. But when fresh ev­i­dence re­veals that there are darker forces at work, his team break him out. Harry’s sus­pi­cions now lead him to an­other of his for­mer Cold War ad­ver­saries.

Events are thrown into tur­moil when Elena (Alice Krige) re­veals de­tailed knowl­edge of a new at­tack on the UK: a pas­sen­ger jet is ap­proach­ing London and can­not be con­tacted. Is it a 9/11-style sui­cide mis­sion? Or do Harry’s real en­e­mies want to trig­ger a big­ger con­flict by con­vinc­ing him to shoot down a plane load of in­no­cent civil­ians?

Satur­day, 8.30pm, ABC1.
