Storyline

The UK Foreign Secretary is hosting the Addressing Africa conference with the hope of re-shaping the North-South trade relationship. MI-6 has intercepted a conversation between the French and the Americans that indicates their earlier support for the British initiative is now waning. MI-5 has the meeting bugged and blanketed with CCTV. A conversation with the US Secretary of State and the Japanese Foreign Minister eventually gives them the edge they need to beat them at their game. Their work isn't over however. When MI-6 intercepts another call, they believe that one of the African delegates, Gabriel Sekoa, will be assassinated. It turns out Sekoa may not be the beacon of hope that he's made himself to be.

Trivia

When Ros, masquerading as the hotel manager, tells the US diplomat that she is familiar with the (fictional) Kansas City Flamers, she indicates that she spent several years 'in Kansas'. But Kansas City is in Missouri, not Kansas (which has an adjacent, much smaller Kansas City--but not one with a sports team). The diplomat would have spotted this as an error right away. See more »

Goofs

The US State Department obviously are poor spellers because they are oblivious to using their "encripted" [sic] communications link. See more »

By far the Worst MI-5 episode ever
12 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is by far the worst episode ever in this series. The writing is terrible, the plot line is preposterous, and it couldn't be more boring. This show has really gone downhill since the departure of Matthew Macfadyen and Keely Hawes. In this absurd episode the British Spy agency gets involved in trying to expedite agreement on a trade treaty which will lift poor African nations from the horrors of poverty and illness. The "big, bad self-serving" Americans stand in the way of this agreement--and it's obviously because the U.S. wants to profit from arms sales to friendly countries which border its enemies, i.e. China. Who comes up with this preposterous drivel? The script is horrible and the story impossible to follow. Let's hope that MI-5 has better things to do with its time and resources. A good example of Junk TV written for a moron audience that will watch anything as long as there is slick editing, fancy camera antics and lots of sound effects. BTW, early in the episode an MI-5 staffer talks about the American Trade Secretary coming to the meeting, and thereafter he is referred to as "Secretary of State".
