Storyline

A French scientist Jerome Durand, has created an air burst EMP missile that when detonated, will shut down all electronic equipment within a square mile. He's now believed to be in London working with a British financier, Frank Hastings, on a possible sale of the new system. The French DGSE send an agent, Jean-Luc Goyon, to work with MI-5 but the British government plans to steal the system before it can be sold to anyone. When Harry Pearce's house is burgled by a gang of professional thieves, they also happen to get away with a briefcase of particularly sensitive information including stolen codes. He's not keen on reporting it so he and Tom set out to get it back. However one of the thieves, 14 year-old JJ, has a photographic memory and knows the information by heart. But perhaps JJ can be of use to them in stealing the missile plans. Written by garykmcd

Episode 2.7
10 June 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Harry has his house burgled and loses his briefcase containing sensitive codes.

The Spooks team were planning a daring raid on stealing an air burst EMP missile system from a dissident French arms dealer.

The French have sent an agent in to work with the Spooks team. However the mission is compromised until the codes are received.

Luckily one of the thieves was JJ, a 14 year old boy with a photographic memory.

Harry and Tom plans to use JJ as a cleanskin to attempt to steal the system.

It was rather fortunate that JJ had a photographic memory. I think Harry's security system in his home was non existent. A decent enough episode especially as the French agent had his own agenda.
