With Zafar Younis being held by the terrorists, Adam Carter had to act quickly to free him but he may have over-stepped when he tries to extract information from one of them. His interrogation confirms his earlier belief that there is a mole leaking information to the group. Harry tells the Home Secretary that he is being blackmailed and therefore submits his resignation. He doesn't mention who is doing the blackmailing, but is up front with the Minister on what he did to compromise himself. Adam is now convinced he knows the mole's identity but accuses the wrong person. MI-5 has an eye witness in Tash, the waitress who bumped one of the terrorists at the train station, and she works with MI-5 to identify the man. Soon however, Tash becomes a target as the mole arranges for some insurance in the event they are captured. Written by garykmcd

Harry Pearce: She's a ruthless, untrustworthy, right-wing crazy who will stop at nothing.
Home Secretary: I got that impression... rather a terrifying stare, also.
Harry Pearce: Mmm, that can be quite useful sometimes.

Possible poster episode(s)?
13 June 2013 | by jwikstroSee all my reviews

Having viewed all ten series and being bold enough to admit it, I would have to say that this two-part "Special" might capture the best that the program has to offer. Without listing all those categories covered, it would suffice to say that this two-part installment benefits from an excellent script, wit, excellent acting with inspired and realistic characterizations, clever and insightful references to real events and people (Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, Jamie Oliver a la his lamb slaughtering, 1984 IRA attempt on Thatcher, etc.) as well as the healthy smattering of academia/classics via Professor Curtis and his awakening through Ruth, and so on. I suppose I just bought it all, but nevertheless it is very well done. The complexity of characters which on the surface seem one-dimensional, then evolve otherwise, is also pointed in this episode. Malcolm, Colin and Tash and their interaction is also charming, while Anna Chancellor plays her character's type well in its incipience. Adam and Zaf are also convincing in their banter.
