Spooks 9 – all set for Monday!

A work colleague was speaking to someone called Lucas, and when he had hung up, I said “I would’ve been SOOO impressed if that Lucas was Lucas North from MI5!” He looked at me and replied, “Why? Who’s that?” – he obviously doesn’t watch Spooks, but as he said he used to once upon a time, I let him know that it starts again on Monday, 20 September 2010, at 21:00 / 9pm. Series nine! Already! Woohoo!

R.I.P. Ros Myers 🙁

And here’s the BBC blurb about episode 9.1:

Reeling after the explosion at the hotel, Section D are left considering the sacrifices they make as spies. But they are soon back in action, tracking Somalian AQ terrorist Abib on a boat from Tangier.

When it becomes clear that the boat is carrying a lethal load, the team fear it is headed to Plymouth for the launch of the newest addition to the royal navy’s fleet. But is the real target elsewhere, and is it too late to find the UK source of the plan?

Lucas’s own faith is challenged when he is visited by an unwelcome ghost from his past.

  1. Boo hoo! I’m going to have to wait until someone posts it online before I can watch it! I haven’t even seen Series 8 on DVD yet! (but I did watch it online).

  2. At least you watched it online, so you’ve seen it. 🙂 A friend of mine in Sweden has been watching it online too, so she has to get a move on to finish s8 now that s9 is about to begin!
