Spooks: The Greater Good – Trailer and lowdown


When charismatic terrorist Adam Qasim escapes from MI5 custody during a routine handover, the legendary Harry Pearce, Head of Counter-terrorism, is blamed. Disgraced and forced to resign, no-one is surprised when Harry disappears one night off a bridge into the Thames…

With MI5 on its knees in the wake of the Qasim debacle and facing controversial reform, former agent Will Crombie is brought back to uncover the truth they feared – Harry’s still alive. He’s gone rogue, and needs Will’s help.

As Qasim prepares his devastating attack on the heart of MI5 in London, Will must decide whether to turn Harry in – or risk everything by trusting the damaged, dangerous master spy who has already betrayed him once before…

Cast includes Kit Harington as Will Holloway (Game of Thrones), Jennifer Ehle as Geraldine Maltby (Zero Dark Thirty) and Peter Firth as Harry Pearce (Spooks tv series).

Directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) with a screenplay by Jonathan Brackley and
Sam Vincent. Produced by Jane Featherstone, Stephen Garrett and Ollie Madden.
