First off, congratulations to the randomly picked winner of the ‘Etienne!‘ contest: Natalie. Enjoy the DVD!
Then apologies for being late in posting this but if you’re in the US it’s important that you check the TV listings of your local PBS affiliate as some are currently airing the 9th season of ‘MI-5‘ (Spooks, Series 9 in the UK) featuring our Sophia as Beth Bailey. Thanks to Richard Armitage Net and Victor I can give you the following info:
• WPBA Channel 30 in Atlanta (Fridays at 11pm)
• KCTS Channel 9 in Washington State and Canada (Saturdays at 10pm)
• UNC TV in North Carolina (Mondays at 10pm, Saturdays at 11 pm)
• WUSF Channel 16 in Florida (Tuesdays at 10pm)
‘Spooks‘, Series 9 premiered in Australia last night. I added the trailer for the first episode to the media archive but you can also watch it on ABC.com. Here‘s the programme copy for next Saturday’s episode.
Thanks to Richard Armitage Net we have a scan from one of the Australian reviews with the full version of the promotional photoshoot also featuring Sophia Myles. And BBC America Shop has a slightly different version and a new still. Hopefully, they’ll one day be available in larger size.

‘Spooks‘ is a show that has always been shrouded in mystery. Beth Bailey is not returning in the new series. At present we have no evidence as to why this is the case. We can only hope that one day it will be revealed.
Visit Ian Wylie’s blog to read the official press release for series 10 of ‘Spooks‘. It will focus on Harry Pearce’s past and his relationship with Ruth Evershed. A host of new characters are joining the cast – but there’s shocking news about our favourite character played by Sophia Myles: Beth Bailey has been decommissioned!
What are your thoughts? I was really looking forward to series 10 because I felt the character of Beth Bailey with her interesting background was never fully developed last year. And now the producers have given away all chance of ever doing so.
Great news! According to Amazon.com the 9th series of ‘Spooks‘ will be released on DVD in the US in the not too distant future: on July 12, 2011. Check out the listing for the MI-5: Volume 9 DVD on Amazon.com to pre-order.
