Tv Season Info

The eighth season of the British spy series "MI-5," which follows secret agents as they foil evil plots around the globe, begins with the fallout from Harry's kidnapping by the Russians. A mysterious organization known only as "Nightingale" is the ongoing focus of the eight episodes. And Lucas' relationship with CIA agent Sarah Caulfied (Genevieve O'Reilly), reignites concerns over his loyalty. This season also sees the exit of one of the few original cast members, Malcolm Wynn-Jones.

Critic Reviews for MI-5 Season 8

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Britain's answer to 24 may lack the budget, breathless momentum and cliffhanger spectacle of American TV but it makes up for it with ingenious international conspiracies and this season presents a doozy.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

One of the most explosive finales the show has seen. Gripping stuff

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

I'm amazed it still takes the rest of the team an entire hour to find the ne'er-do-wells and kick ass... I'm just as amazed to find I still love watching them do it.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

The show has passed its peak but not sunk so low as to be embarrassing, it still goes out on something of a high, and it's remembered as a decent example of its type.
