There is someone in this building who is seriously disloyal. I could be looking at him or her right now.
That is a very serious allegation to level at your sister service.
Well my sister should be bent over and given a good whack on the behind!

A story ripped out of the press headlines. It was a time when former Conservative bigwigs were being imprisoned for being naughty in their private life, usually finding God when they were inside. I suppose that was better than needing a jar of Vaseline in the prison cells.
Hampton Wilder is a former minister released from prison for illegal arms sales. On his release he tells Harry that a Labour politician and close friend of the Prime Minister, Richard Maynard is also corrupt and was friendly with a Russian spy.
Wilder wrote all this in his memoirs but the manuscript has gone missing.
Harry thinks this could be a wild goose chase by a bitter ex-minister. Siviter shows up again with some important information but Harry does not trust him. However Siviter questions Maynard's loyalties and he is also more than friendly with Tessa.
Another intriguing episode, with twists and turns that has a nice payoff. There are also some ongoing threads, Danny and Zoe are now flat sharing and have cause to mistrust Tessa. Tom gets trouble from Ellie's ex husband who finds out that Tom is not a man you want to tamper with.
This was Hugh Laurie's last appearance in Spooks. He would go off to America to become the world's highest paid television actor.
