Spooks

So far the first three seasons of Spooks has already been shown on the ABC and the fourth is expected to be shown next year.

In the meantime, BBC3 has announced a spinoff of Spooks tentatively titled Rogue Spooks:
http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/article/ds40786.html

"BBC Three will make a new spin-off show from the popular action-drama Spooks, it was announced today.

Speaking at the launch of their winter and spring schedule, the channel's controller Julian Bellamy outlined the plans for the tentatively titled Rogue Spooks, featuring raw MI5 recruits who "follow a different rule book".

Bellamy added: "Spooks is a known and popular brand, so Rogue Spooks seems like a common sense thing to do." It is believed that the series will be filmed for broadcast late in 2007."

Found from TV WEEK that the ABC will finally show season 4 from Friday March 16 at 9:25pm and the season premiere comes second place in TV WEEK's highlights of the day.

The tv guide from the Sydney Sunday Telegraph says the time is actually five minutes earlier at 9:20pm. Better safe to tune in at 9:20 instead of 9:25.

Article of Spooks' return on the ABC in The Age:
http://www.theage.com.au/news/tv--ra...e#contentSwap1
Here are a couple of paragraphs from the article that people maybe particularly interested in:
"As to why the ABC waited so long to screen this [fourth] series (it went to air in the UK in September 2005), a statement from the programming department reads: "We have been waiting so that we could program it with another one-hour drama series to make it a double bill."

Will the ABC run series four and five back-to-back to catch up to the UK? The statement continues: "Scheduling plans don't allow this, so not at this stage.""

The Special Part 1:
A solid start to season 4 and it was worth the wait.

The Special Part II:
A neat conclusion.
I found Curtis to be annoying.
I like Martine McCutcheon's performance as Tash and it was quite a tense moment when she was attached to the bomb towards the end of the episode.
I also like how Tash responded to Harry's answer of what the country ever did for her.

Divided They Fall:
Featuring a very fine performance from Blake's 7 star Steven Pacey. In fact a company Blake & Research got mentioned. Wonder if that is a coincidence.
A well handled episode about a racist MP and MI5's attempt to stop him from gaining further influence on the people.

Spooks on April 13 is TV WEEK's Pick of the Day.

Road Trip:
The female MI5 agent with the Prince is a knockout.
Just before the terrorist physician revealed what the target was, I thought Parliament, and then he said the House of Commons. That was a lucky guess.
A very intense episode. Well done.

The Book:
The episode begins on what happened sometime ago before fast forwarding to the present day. Coincidentally this was how the Charmed episode 12 Angry Zen which was on 10 earlier in the day, began.
Jo Portman (Miranda Raison, who has recently appeared in Doctor Who) is very pretty.
It's fun that Adam took the name Roger Thornhill, the lead character in North By Northwest.
The sequence of the unsuccessful hit on Gary along with Ruth and Zaf were served really well with the music.
Very surprising to see where the book of the title eventually turned up.

The Innocent:
This episode looks at the impact of imprisoning an innocent man. The message that is trying to convey is well delivered and certainly no one wants to be arrested for something they did not do.
