UNDER PRESSURE Ros and Lucas oil the wheels of a dodgy government gas deal
PICK OF THE DAY Spooks 9.00 pm BBC1
DRAMA Imagine you are a spy, and you want to meet another spy for a clandestine chat. You would choose a greasy-spoon cafe or a grotty alleyway, somewhere inconspicuous where you were unlikely to be spotted by your enemies.
You wouldn't choose a huge deserted bandstand in a public park, or the steps of the Albert Memorial in London, would you? That would be like carrying a large placard with the words "Hello! We are spies!" daubed on it in orange paint. Yet Spooks' personnel insist upon having their supposedly secret get-togethers in such public places. But they aren't your usual spies; Spooks agents dress in black leather and walk in slow motion and they never, ever smile. Not that there's much to laugh about. Britain's energy supply is in crisis and power cuts are looming after a huge fire at the country's biggest gas processing plant.
The government wants to cut a deal with a grubby little Russian satellite country with a very bad human rights record. It's up to the Spooks to ensure everything goes smoothly. The story is told with Spooks' trademark brio and yes, it's probably all quite preposterous. But by heck, it's good fun. AG
