A Fitting Farewell
28 October 2011 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Which is exactly what I think the final episode of 'Spooks' was. I didn't think they would be able to tie up all the story threads involving the Gavriks and Harry's past satisfactorily in just an hour, but for me, they did. The acting from most of the cast was outstanding, and from Peter Firth just phenomenal. Lara Pulver and Max Brown were fairly hopeless as usual, (at least in my opinion, their casting was the only thing to have marred this concluding series) but the fact that their characters were kept (very wisely, I think) in a very secondary role during this episode prevented them from spoiling it.

Yes, the ending is tragic, and not everyone will be happy with it, but I think it was the most appropriate conclusion. The idea of Harry and Ruth riding off into the sunset, while sweet, would have been completely out of character with 'Spooks', which has never gone in for saccharine happy endings. The last few scenes of the show, involving brief but very moving acknowledgement of the other officers the section has lost, Harry's own private farewell to Ruth and Harry's return to his desk were beautifully crafted and rounded the whole thing off to perfection. The last line couldn't have been better. Yes, a very fitting farewell to a wonderful show that everyone involved in should be very very proud of.
