Storyline

Zoe is undercover on a routine op, pretending to be a PR agent hoping to land a contract with the Turkish government. She winds up a hostage - along with dozens of others - when a group of Kurds take over the Turkish embassy and demand the release of political prisoners. However, the team pieces together that this is just a cover, as a disgruntled former spook is using kidnapping and terrorism to gain access to a secret bank account - one with millions of pounds... and the personal identities of every undercover officer.

Episode 1.3
7 July 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

As Zoe is undercover at a party in the Turkish Embassy. It gets raided by Kurd separatists.

Zoe uses her mobile phone as the eyes and ears as Harry Preece is in the embarrassing position to inform the British cabinet how he has an inside woman in there.

The Kurds are assisted by what seems to be some ex British military types. It just that one is a ghost from the past, who plans to steal money and the names of all the secret service officials.

Another tense thrilling episode, there is always something more going on in this first series, it is never just the 'A' plot.

The episode still has time to reflect on the various characters personal life. This time on Tessa Phillips.

Danny Hunter also gets to reflect on someone he lost.
