Storyline

With the UK terror threat level raised to severe, Home Secretary Montague holds secret meetings with the Director General of the Security Service, side-stepping her own Minister for Counter Terrorism and the Police. Specialist Protection Officer Budd is on high alert as Secretary Montague's hard-line stance on national security propels her further into the public eye. With his home life becoming more difficult, it appears as if Budd's natural animosity towards the Home Secretary is beginning to fade. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

For all the exterior shots of the Julia's car ride. The car was shown to be a black sixth generation BMW 7 series (G11/G12). However, for the escape scene as well as all other interior scenes throughout the series the team replaced the car with an older model 5th generation model BMW 7 series (F01/F02). This is most noticeable at the 38:30 mark. You can clearly see the different interior panels, wheels, tail lights and headlights for the older vehicle. This is most likely done to save cost as a 7-10 year old used BMW 7 series costs far less to purchase or rent. See more »

Yes! I thought the same.

Definitely in the mold of "Spooks" (called "MI-5" here in the states for some unknown reason). The plotting, the personal stories, the action scenes, of course, and the non-stop edge-of-your-seat stuff. I am up to Episode 2 - it's so good, I want it to last. Unfortunately, one of the review websites (not this one) gave out a couple of spoilers from subsequent episodes. BooHiss. But don't miss this one. You might need subtitles for a few of the actors' dialog, but one of the better series from across the pond.
