Spooks Season 8, Episode 5 – The official details are as follows…
The sudden death of CIA boss Samuel Walker is puzzling Harry Pearce, as the spy drama continues. The official line is that he committed suicide, but Harry doesn’t buy it and, when another CIA agent dies, he begins to wonder whether the deaths have something to do with the power meeting at Basel. Walker had arranged to meet Harry to talk about Basel, but he never made it and something really doesn’t add up..
Meanwhile, Ros Myers is contacted by her old mentor, Jack Coleville, an ex-MI6 golden boy who suddenly quit the service. Coleville asks Ros to read his memoirs, paying special attention to a chapter about Harry and Gibraltar. However, Harry insists he was never in Gibraltar, so what is Coleville’s motive for lying?.
Soon, two more intelligence officers are dead and it becomes apparent that the murderer has access to sensitive information. The horrifying truth suddenly dawns on Ros; it’s Coleville..
Ros and Lucas North race to find Coleville at his London address. But when Ros goes in there’s no sign of him and she soon realises the house is booby-trapped. Ros escapes, but it’s clear that Coleville means business..
As the pieces start to come together, Ros puts herself in the firing line in a bid to draw Coleville out. Will she be able to keep her cool when faced with the man who taught her everything she knows?.
Harry Pearce is played by Peter Firth, Ros Myers by Hermione Norris, Jack Coleville by Stephen Boxer and Lucas North by Richard Armitage.
