Storyline

The MI-5 team is still recovering from the loss of one of their own. In reviewing CCTV coverage of a riot at an immigration detention facility, Lucas North recognizes the one man who managed to escape: Oleg Darshavin, his Russian interrogator and torturer during his eight years of imprisonment. When they meet again, Darshavin offers to tell Lucas of an impending terrorist attack on the UK in return for a UK passport and money. Darshavin isn't being entirely truthful, however. Harry tells his CIA counterpart about the rumored secret Swiss meetings on a new world order and they agree to cooperate. The American, agent Sarah Caulfield's superior, learns of her affair with Lucas North and he encourages her to continue the relationship as he suspects Lucas is a double agent. He learns that Sarah has her own agenda. Written by garykmcd

Lucas North: No idea, but I have a feeling it might be in Latin.

Who can you trust?
27 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The people of MI-5 are clearly made of sterner stuff than the rest of us as apart from a bit of a chat and some bad dreams in the episode's opening minutes they seem to have put Jo's death behind them. Perhaps it is because there is always an threat to take their minds off it.

This week sees Lusas's Russian torturer in Britain claiming to have knowledge of a Sudanese plot to attack a target within the UK, a target he won't disclose until he has been given a British passport and one million dollars. Things are complicated when their meeting is interrupted by Lucas's new American girl friend who just happens to work for the CIA. Is the Russian to be trusted? Is Lucas's judgement impaired on the subject? In the back ground it seems like members of various intelligence agencies are getting together without the knowledge of their governments to plot a new world order, at first it seems these are just whispers but events towards the end of the episode suggest it is a very real threat which who's members are willing to kill to protect its secrecy.

As one would expect from this series we are constantly left wondering who can be trusted, the acting is pretty solid as always and the ending was a nice surprise which I won't spoil here.
