Details of the final episode of the current series. BEWARE – contains spoilers.
Monday 13 November, 9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE
The environmental terrorist group, Divine Earth, has stormed the Thames Barrier and is threatening to flood London if the Government doesn’t publish a secret document entitled Aftermath, in the concluding episode of the spy drama.
An emergency meeting of senior Ministers and security services is called and an engineer explains the death and destruction they face if the terrorists carry out their threat.
The Deputy Prime Minister denies any knowledge of the Aftermath document, making it impossible to meet the terrorists’ demands.
On The Grid, Adam and Ros attempt to negotiate with Divine Earth, while Jo and Zaf build up a profile of the group.
One member lost friends and family in the New Orleans flood and Adam thinks he can use this to get close to him and prevent the atrocity.
The team suspects that the Deputy PM is hiding something and some snooping reveals that the Aftermath document does exist, after all. It’s political dynamite: a proposal to abandon any attempt to tackle global warming and, instead, build on economic and military strength so that Britain and America can control the remaining resources.
There’s no doubt that it’s too explosive to be published.
Meanwhile, Adam enters the Thames Barrier in an attempt to distract the terrorists so that Special Forces can storm in.
However, the terrorists seem to be one step ahead and, when Ros follows Adam into the Barrier, both their lives are in mortal danger.
The clock is still ticking and the terrorists have now upped their demands. Can Adam talk down Divine Earth even as another post-traumatic stress attack threatens to seize him?
The Deputy Prime Minister is played by Cheryl Campbell, Adam by Rupert Penry-Jones, Ros by Hermione Norris, Jo by Miranda Raison, Zaf by Raza Jaffrey and Harry by Peter Firth.
