Peter Firth is the only cast member to appear in every episode of the show, as well as star in the followup film MI-5 (2015). He does not, however, appear in Spooks: Code 9 (2008). See more »
At numerous times throughout series 1 notably in "One Last Dance" and "Traitor's Gate" close-ups of intelligence files show that all the information is the same and all relates to Mary Kane's terminated pregnancy from episode 1 "Thou Shalt Not Kill". See more »
The show does not have any end credits, ending each episode with a trailer for the next episode and only showing a BBC production information screen. It does not list any cast/crew. Just the caption "A Kudos Production". See more »
The show runs for 60 minutes, and in the UK airs on channel BBC1 which shows programs without commercials. The show has been re-named MI-5 for American broadcasts on the A&E network, and each episode is edited down to approx 44 minutes to include commercials in a 60 minute time slot. See more »
Just finished the last episode of series three, and was reminded why this is my favourite show of all time. I think the comparisons to 24 are quite unfair--they both deal with terrorism, but the similarities end there. Spooks is far more cerebral, and spends more effort on character and plot development.
Unlike other reviewers, I felt series three was every bit as good (and in many ways even better) than the previous two. The departure of several main characters was handled exceedingly well, and while they'll be missed, I think their replacements are quite strong and as such, the transition has been quite smooth. Kudos! (Er, no pun intended)
