Section D are facing a suicide bomb threat, when two prisoners are released. Having been trained for martyrdom in prison, one of the released convicts, Ashur Mohali is an MI5 asset, who's been made a promise that if he had spent two years in prison gathering information to help stop a terrorist attack, he and his daughter will be given UK citizenship. While the team try to prevent the attack and keep Ashur onside, Harry and Ruth make a decision to gather evidence against CIA Deputy Director Jim Coaver, now suspected of impersonating Harry and pursuing information from Elena Gavrik. Things takes a turn for the worst when Elena is attacked, and revelations lead Ruth to believe that it is indeed Coaver that is responsible for the attacks on the Gavrik's and MI5. Meanwhile, Erin has to make an impossible decision when the teams operation causes her to be compromised when her own daughter is put in danger.

Protecting ones family
10 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The net may be closing in on the people attempting to stop the Anglo-Russian intelligence cooperation but that doesn't mean that other threats have gone; this week the team must prevent an Al Qaeda type suicide bombing in central London. They have a man on the inside but he is getting cold feet because MI5's promise to bring his daughter to the UK has not materialised. As the moment of the attack approaches he learns that she is in imminent danger; his isn't the only young daughter in danger though; the terrorists have known who Erin was from the start!

This was another thrilling episode which showed that the good guys can be duplicitous when dealing with their assets but equally that they have human frailties too… after all what mother wouldn't want to do whatever it took to save her child even if a greater number of people were endangered; Lara Pulver brought genuine emotion to the role of Erin. The ending played out well and managed to be somewhat shocking even though it was almost inevitable once the operation had started.
