Critic Reviews for MI-5 Season 10

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Spooks's brilliance has been to tiptoe along that line from start to finish.

Dec 3, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The rare moments of intrigue were dredged from Harry's past affair with a Russian double agent. There will no doubt be more double-dealing to come.

Dec 3, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

If you like your dramas with documentary-esque levels of accuracy then this may not be your cup of tea but this is an outstanding series with brilliant action with some intense ethical challenges thrown in to keep the grey matter moving.

Dec 3, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It was goodbye to Spooks, which ended after 10 series of quality violence, heroism and double-dealing. It was a mesmerising finale.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

In its lengthy run Spooks has at times been fantastical and a little holey in the plot department, but it has also been flawless in engrossing viewers and creating very palpable tension and this final outing did not disappoint.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Walker's performance has been a sustained study in antisocial dowdiness, and in its quiet way a small masterpiece of TV acting.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

But Spooks wraps all those fears together and throws them away. Spooks says we're still in charge, still masterful, still dynamically resourceful. It may be tripe, but it knows its onions.

And so Spooks bows out as it should - with Harry at his desk, top button fastened, emotions contained, Britain safe.

Top Critic

The finale isn't so much satisfying as fitting, but I still feel a little cheated by it all after an investment of so many seasons.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

On the strength of this opening episode, this looks as though it'll be a fantastic final season.
