A Very British Coup + Adrenaline + Lashings of Style = Spooks : Season 5 Episodes 1 & 2
I should have posted this last night and it is a little unfair as Spook’s plot wasn’t identical to A Very British Coup. Neither is it a huge surprise that a coup attempt would include riots, the police, a media mogul, bad spies, corrupt politicians, help from the Russians, a hanging and various other elements. Not really surprising since both are based on the (alleged) coup plot in the 1970s. Both are enjoyable pieces of drama.
