Spooks 801 – The official details are as follows…

The team is in a state of panic following Harry’s kidnapping by FSB agent Viktor Sarkisian as the compelling spy drama starring Peter Firth, Hermione Norris and Richard Armitage returns for a new series.

It seems their worst fears are confirmed when the Sacred Army of Righteous Vengeance (SARV) posts footage of Harry’s execution on the internet. However, Ros refuses to believe Harry is dead and leads Lucas North and the rest of the team on a mission to find him.

When Sarkisian’s body is found, it seems they’ve lost their strongest lead. Ros sends Lucas to try to extract information from new CIA liaison officer Sarah Caulfield but, despite a clear attraction between the pair, it appears she can’t assist him. However, help arrives from an unexpected source when former team member Ruth Evershed returns to the grid, fearing for her life.

Ruth reveals that Harry once thwarted a clandestine operation to smuggle weapons-grade uranium into Iraq, and only he and Ruth are privy to its true whereabouts. Now a group of rogue intelligence officers want it back and they don’t care who they have to kill to get it.

When Ruth and her family are kidnapped, the race is on for Section D to not only find them before they are killed, but also to discover whether Harry is still alive.

Harry Pearce is played by Peter Firth, Viktor Sarkisian by Peter Sullivan, Ros Myers by Hermione Norris, Lucas North by Richard Armitage, Sarah Caulfield by Genevieve O’Reilly and Ruth Evershed by Nicola Walker.

  1. I’m seeing these pics all over the web. Is it okay for these pics to be reproduced at fan forums, discussion/message boards, etc., without attribution to filmreviewonline.com? Are they subject to your copyright, too?

    1. Hi filmfanantic09
      This is an interesting question and often one that is wrongly understood.

      As much as we like to think the web is free and easy, the pictures (and articles) are subject to copyright. Any picture on are site should not be copied with or without attribution. The Spooks pictures are copyright of the production company, Kudos.

      You can of course put a link to our posts on the fan forum so everyone can see what your excited about. That way your not breaking copyright and everyone would be happy.
