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!
