Storyline

Environmental terrorists take control of the Thames barrier just as a major storm surge threatens to flood the London area. They demand that the British government publish a secret document entitled Aftermath but MI-5 can't find it. It's apparent that the Deputy Prime Minster, the PM is away, knows far more than she is saying. Adam meanwhile continues to struggle with post-traumatic stress syndrome. When he enters the facility to negotiate with the terrorists, he suffers an attack and is unable to function. It's left to Ros to find a way in and convince their captors that they've won and the document will be published. Written by garykmcd

wow!!!
30 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the first series of "Spooks" that I have watched, and I have to say: this is the best out of the whole 5th series! The acting is good, the story is very good, and the whole episode is edge-of-your-seat stuff.

A group of Environmental terrorists break into the Thames Barrier and intend to blow it up unless the British government hand over a secret file to them. The Government deny all knowledge of this file and the Spooks team have to try and stop the terrorists from detonating the explosives and causing a flood of London.

Sounds good? It is! If you are going to pick a single episode of spooks to watch, watch this one. 10/10!
