Storyline

Repeated attacks on MI5's computer system threaten the theft of virtually all classified information. Danny is undercover as a journalist for an socialist paper linked to an anarchist group while Zoe takes a turn as a middle school teacher to get close to another instructor who may be spearheading the computer attacks. Moreso than other episodes, though, everything is not as it seems as a long-dead agent and a potential nuclear device at the school play into a web of deceit and confusion that nearly costs MI5 all their secrets.

Episode 2.3
22 May 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

MI5 agents in the field are in danger as the MI5 computers are being repeatedly hack by cyber terrorists.

Suspicion falls on Gordon Blaney, a member of a socialist anarchist group with a violent past. Zoe goes undercover as a teacher in a school that Blaney works in. She finds that he is just a mild mannered and dedicated teacher.

Danny goes undercover at a small socialist newspaper to find out if they have any links with cyber hacks. Danny finds that they are just paranoid nobodies.

Harry Pearce finds that the cyber attacks are linked to a dead field agent and someone traumatised by it.

I think the editing made it easier to work out the culprit in this one. The portrayal of the damaged person was done well.
