Storyline

The Home Secretary orders Harry to support a Russian plan to stop the Azakstan Freedom Front from obtaining a deadly biological weapon that was supposed to have been destroyed in the 1960s. The AFF supports independence from Russia and Lucas North works with the Russian security service, the FSB, in stopping them, though he doesn't necessarily agree with their shoot first approach to dealing with terrorists. One of the terrorists, Azis Aibek, manages to escape and make his way to London to see if he can get the British sample of the WMD. In an unprecedented move, the Home Secretary orders Harry to let and FSB officer onto the grid as they hunt Aibek down. Lucas meanwhile contacts Maya and promises to tell her why he never contacted her. Written by garykmcd

Harry Pearce: It appears I have allowed us to be played by Moscow right from the start
Ruth Evershed: Well not right from the start Harry, that wasn't why you let Aibek go
Harry Pearce: But by allowing him to escape I did the Russians a favour and I have to admit, that was my mistake
Ruth Evershed: A mistake of judgement maybe... but not of decency... Sometimes you have to do what's necessary Harry
