Storyline

Repeated attacks on MI5's computer system threaten the theft of virtually all classified information. Danny is undercover as a journalist for an socialist paper linked to an anarchist group while Zoe takes a turn as a middle school teacher to get close to another instructor who may be spearheading the computer attacks. Moreso than other episodes, though, everything is not as it seems as a long-dead agent and a potential nuclear device at the school play into a web of deceit and confusion that nearly costs MI5 all their secrets.

This episode made me want to throw things at the screen
20 March 2016 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Definitely the worst episode of the early series of Spooks.

A teenage 'hacker' can supposedly gain access to the MI5 computer 'inner sanctum' from his bedroom. This episode includes all the worst clichés of computer hacking in film & TV. Meaningless graphics pop up on people's screens with just a few keystrokes from him and apparently MI5 have all the lights in the building flash when someone attacks their network firewall...

Did no one look at the script and say "this is just silly"? The human drama elements of the script were OK, and there was a bit of fun to be had with Zoe going undercover as a school teacher, but it was all completely ruined with the over-the-top computer aspects.
