Just found out theres been a format change. We are now looking at ten episodes in serial form. No closed stories. Just one long run around the dark side of intelligence forces.

Finally back for a new series next week is Spooks, the BBC's upmarket version of 24, with an "exciting" new serial format.

This time round the ten episodes will see the team deal with a single threat - the tense and mistrustful relationship between Britain, the US and Iran, with all the diplomatic and security issues that it brings.

For the first time (two-parters aside), this means that plotlines will carry over from episode to episode, so expect cliffhangers galore. As the BBC sells it, series six is "an exhilarating, high octane journey with an abundance of dramatic twists and turns". Fancy!

There is no shortage of the promised twists and turns in episode one, which begins with Ros receiving intel about Iranian terrorist Mehan Asnik and his plans for a chemical attack in London. Zaf, undercover in Tehran, helps plant a bomb on board a train in order to kill Asnik and destroy the virus.

Unfortunately, another busy commuter train pulls alongside and the civilian casualty count increases. The lethal phial is released, and it soon emerges that MI5 was the victim of false intelligence, a deliberate act to get them to target Asnik and release the virus onto the innocent population.

That's alright though - the virus was released in Iran, not Britain, right? Wrong...

Asnik, having left the train before the explosion, comes to Adam to defect, unaware that he has already been infected with the virus. On the way back to base Asnik, Zaf and Adam are intercepted by a group of mercenaries - who may or may not be working for Asnik's former handler, the mysterious "Copenhagen" - with Zaf and Asnik being taken captive.

Before too long a highly contagious Asnik has infected Zaf and the kidnappers, who unsurprisingly become incentivised to negotiate their release for a virus. Asnik is later deposited onto the busy streets of London while a rapidly-deteriorating Zaf is left with the mercenaries.

Good news ! as last season the series really became a bit dull.
Still miss Matthew Macfadyen thought, he gave much more depth to the character.

The only acceptable 'Lone Wolf' you'll be allowed to play :

this should be interesting i thought they were running a little thin on ideas, still i think season 1 will always be the best.
