I can’t believe this year’s series of ‘Spooks‘ is already over! It was an amazing 8 episodes. I admit for obvious reasons I was excited for series 9 like never before for a series of ‘Spooks‘. Still, I can objectively say that it was superb overall. I loved that the show went back to putting multi-layered plots and spy tradecraft above bombs and action. And while I’m still in mourning (not for Sophia’s character, she lives) I thought the tricky character arc of the series was cleverly played out.
Sophia Myles’ character Beth Bailey got one of the most interesting introductions of the show ever and episode 2 explored her background in a unique episode format. Episode 4 saw her learning the ropes and caring for her assett while in episode 5 she got to go undercover and babysit the Palestinean delegation. These to me were standout episodes from a Sophia point of view. While she got to have a few strong moments throughout other episodes her character hasn’t been developed further this series. I can’t wait for 2011 and series 10 to see who Beth Bailey is! Until then, Monday nights will definitely be boring.
