Spooks - Too Near The Truth?

#1
On another thread, someone else has mentioned that the current series of Spooks is getting a bit like real life. For anyone who doesn't watch it, Iran and the West are at loggerheads about Mr Dinnerjacket and his country acquiring nuclear weapons. It's stirring stuff and I can't wait for BBC1 on Tuesdays at 9pm to catch the next thrilling episode.

But are we actually watching something which could really appear on the 9 O'Clock News at any time? The Yanks are cast as interfering muddlers who have their own agenda (to blow Iran out of the atlas!). Just seems to me that the writer(s) either have a very good imagination or they own a time machine and are warning us not to do what's in the last episode!

Do you mean the bit where trainee reporters are recruited overnight to save the World? Or where Adam gets to go through luggage in an overhead locker long enough for even the pilot to notice?

Do enjoy it though :oops:

My sincere condolances on your impending death, following the bizzare "fatal accident". Or "suicide".

The series that was made in 2005 featured a bomb attack in London. There was some discussion at the time about wether or not they should show the episode.

At one point in that episode, a newspaper headlins is shown: "CARNAGE!"

This, of course, was the headline of several newspapers after 7/7...

When really we know it is based here.
