Just as the British launch a peace process meant to stabilize its relations with Iran, MI-5 learn that a rogue Iranian intelligence officer, Megan Asnik , may be plotting an attack. Zaf and Adam go undercover in Tehran with the intent to assassinate Aznik before he can cause any real damage. Their attempt to get him fails but results in the death of many innocent Iranian civilians. When Aznik shows up in the British Embassy requesting asylum, he claims to be a double agent who has been feeding the West information about Iran's biological weapons development. His handler is code-named Copenhagen. Realizing they've been set-up, MI-5 needs to identify Copenhagen and find out exactly what is going on. Written by garykmcd

19 November 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Series six does not really measure up to the high standards Spooks has set. First of all, visually it's much more conventional than the earlier series. But stories and characters were always Spooks' strongest assets. The stories are just not as gripping as they used to be and they seem to be running out of ideas. The first two episodes are about biological warfare, the third is about chemical warfare. The development of the story lines is sometimes not very convincing in terms of arriving at a solution. Too often there is the deus ex machina which is not satisfying. The characters are interesting as always, particularly nerw arrival Connie. Ros was never my favourite character but now she definitely develops in s very strange way. That in itself is not a bad thing but there are things going on which someone should notice but no one does. So all in all, it's entertaining but Spooks is definitely running out of steam.
