WINTER of the series, end of the Luckily Ros on her
PICK OF THE DAY Spooks 9.00pm BBC1
DRAMA Terrifyingly implacable Ros (is she actually human? Has anyone checked?) is in a spectacularly no-nonsense mood as Spooks reaches its finale. It's up to her and colleague Lucas to save the world from nuclear destruction and, by heck, Ros isn't going to let anyone get in her way.
It's a terrific episode that just about makes sense if you're prepared to believe that only two members of MB stand in the way of global meltdown. But this isn't the time to debate Secret Service staffing levels; just go with the flow, as India and Pakistan look set to press the button. Who will blink first?
Pakistan has "kidnapped" an Indian submarine and is holding the vessel in a harbour. But it appears that the situation has been engineered deliberately to bring the world to the point of nuclear annihilation. The two sides are invited to London for peace talks, but someone is determined that they will fail - spectacularly and bloodily.
Even though, in your heart of hearts, you know it's nonsense, it's hard not to get drawn in as the tension rockets and the episode ends in a classic Spooks cliffhanger. (Alison Graham)

3/4. The Woolryches are an old English clan with traditional old English attitudes. Michael, the 83-year-old patriarch, is passionate about his heritage but less enthusiastic about his brother Toby. The relationship between the two broke down following the death of their father when Michael inherited everything. Toby's gripe is centred symbolically on a portrait of his mother, which he refuses to part with. Sceptical about reconciling with his brother, his main priority is to mend the relationship with his daughter Elizabeth, whom he hasn't spoken to for years.

In a career spanning six decades, David Attenborough has seen the world population grow from 2.5 billion in 1950 to some seven billion today. In this special edition of Horizon he reflects on the impact of such rapid growth, both on the environment and humanity itself.
