Storyline

A kidnapped Harry Pearce is kept prisoner in an abandoned warehouse without really knowing what his captors want. When men try to kidnap Ruth, now married and with a stepson, she goes straight to MI-5 to find out what is going on. There she reveals a secret only she and knew: the location of a stash of weapons grade uranium that was headed to Baghdad justify American claims of WMDs and the invasion of Iraq. Lucas North asks for help from newly arrived CIA agent Sarah Caulfield in finding the American links to the plot. When Ruth's stepson is threatened, Malcolm puts his life on the line to save him.

Absolute dynamite
4 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First episode of the new season starts off exactly where the last episode of the previous season finished. Harry has been kidnapped by the Russians though there is a much darker ulterior motive behind it all.

Lucas and Ros race to try and find him and we see the very welcome return of Ruth Evershed. This is a superb series and shows the BBC at its best. It is a shame that these series are few and far between now and we have to put up with the rubbish of reality TV.

On a sombre note, Malcolm announces he wishes to retire. Its quite refreshing to see someone live to retirement rather than getting killed off which is what usually happens.

Great stuff, can't wait for the rest of the series.
