The BBC's TV spy drama Spooks is coming back and MI5's Section D grapples with growing mistrust between the British, American and Iranian governments culminates in a series of high-risk operations at home, pushing the Section to its very limits.
As Iran's race to become a nuclear power impacts on British and American security, the distinction between friend and foe becomes ever-more blurred. Harry and his team start to question exactly whose agenda they're working to and who they can trust - both on and off the Grid.
Meanwhile, the electric atmosphere between Adam and Ros comes to a head, but things are complicated further by Adam's ongoing and dangerous affair with a key asset inside the Iranian Embassy. Harry gains a new friend on the Grid when he recruits old MI5 colleague Connie (Gemma Jones) as desk officer. Clever, and with plenty of old-school tricks up her sleeve, she might just be able to fill the void left by Ruth's departure.
Rupert Penry-Jones, Hermione Norris and Peter Firth return to head up Section D as officers Adam, Ros and Harry. Raza Jaffrey, Miranda Raison and Hugh Simon also return as Zaf, Jo and Malcolm. Guest stars include Matthew Marsh and Robert Glenister.
