Storyline

MI-5 try to stop a ruthless City financier who is out to force the collapse of a major bank. Manipulating the market is Alexis Maynell's specialty. Ros Myers goes undercover to seek evidence that Meynell is spreading the rumors that the bank in question, Highland Life, is about to go under. The Minister is prepared to freeze Meynell's assets, but only if MI-5 can find concrete evidence that he is involved in insider trading and market manipulation. Ros' life is in danger however when her cover is blown. Connie James finds herself frozen out and under suspicion as Harry continues to investigate the leak around the Sugar Horse network. Harry realizes he may have made a very serious error. Jo Portman's flashbacks are beginning to affect her work. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The code used by Ben to access Maynell's computer system is "koudelka_68", almost certainly a reference to Josef Koudelka who is particularly famous for his photographs of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, Lucas North tells the Chancellor that Meynell created his first fortune by shorting airline stocks on September 11, and "as the second plane plowed into its target, Meynell made fifteen billion pounds." In fact, the American stock exchanges (NYSE, Nasdaq, and AMEX) did not open on 9/11/01 at all (and not again until 9/17/01). Trading on the London Stock Exchange was limited on 9/11/01 and it closed early, to re-open on Wednesday. See more »
