MI-5 – Season 10
Final 6 episodes of the U.K. Spy Series, starring Peter Firth & Nicola Walker

Two months following the death of Lucas North, and after trading Albany, a state secret, for Ruth Evershed (Nicola Walker), Sir Harry Pearce (Peter Firth) is on garden leave until a tribunal can determine his future with MI5. With help from Home Secretary William Towers (Simon Russell Beale), Harry returns to work on a provisional basis until the tribunal’s conclusion. Harry learns that old friend Max Witt (Giles Havergal) was murdered.

His Russian opposite, Ilya Gavrik (Jonathan Hyde), is smuggled into the country by Towers, who reveals Gavrik is proposing a partnership between Russia and the United Kingdom without the Americans knowing. It has emerged that Witt was killed because he knew somebody is posing as Harry using his old coded messages from the Cold War; the imposter made contact with Elena (Alice Krige), Gavrik’s wife, and Harry’s former asset. Section D learns of a kill order by the Chechens on Gavrik during a function. Harry intercepts the assassin, who flees and then killed by new Section D Chief Erin Watts (Lara Pulver “Sherlock”/”True Blood”). Despite this, the assassin’s handlers deem the mission a success. But then some shocking revelations are made!

Kevin Whately & Laurence Fox return for a fifth season of the popular detective series, set in the seemingly perfect academic haven of Oxford.
