Spooks set a new benchmark for British primetime drama series from the moment it premiered. Creator David Wolstencroft supplied spare, stylish scripts for the first series leading the viewer into the heart of the UK intelligence service with his particular vision of espionage in the 21st century.
Immediately acclaimed, the show has been a cornerstone of the BBC's schedules and now enters its tenth and final series as well as being regularly broadcast across the world.
Head of Drama at the BBC Ben Stephenson described Spooks as a "groundbreaking series" which "redefined drama on the channel for a new generation".
