Best Drama

'Spooks'No.3: Spooks (8.29%)

This explosive drama proved a big hit with viewers, and caused controversy when one of its leading characters was brutally killed off in episode 2. Series 1 ended on a cliffhanger that is set to be revolved in the new series later this year.

    "Looked like it would be rubbish - turned about to be amazing. The most gripping, compelling and moving drama ever on British TV."
    Dan Grey, Reading

    "Brilliantly acted and totally addictive."
    Kirsten Thompson, Edinburgh
    "Although I'm sure what was shown eclipses what an officer of MI5 would experience in a lifetime, it was an excellent show: great character relationships and quite frightening to think that there are actually people out there that are prepared to do anything for their cause and who are more ruthless than those characters depicted. Thankfully, they are not numerous, nor do they impact on most people's daily lives. Brilliantly acted and totally addictive. Can't wait for the next series - especially with that cliffhanger!"
    Kirsten Thompson, Edinburgh

    "Fantastical but believable, hard edged but streaked with humanity, gripping and plausible storylines played out with beautifully understated performances, free from the exaggerations and melodrama of many transatlantic productions. Superb."
    Robert Wragg, Nottingham

    "Brilliant programme with fantastic actors/actresses, had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish."
    Angela Owen, Devon

    Your Comments

    "I couldn't wait each week for the next episode. I was really disappointed when it ended. Please make a new series!"
    Sinead Cahir, Dublin

    "Lots of plot twists to keep you guessing."
    Clare Simpson

    "When will there be a second series? Soon I hope!"
    B. X. Barnes, Lancashire

    "New un-ashamed writing. Not always having the good guys lasting to the end!"
    Tim Kyte, Warwickshire

    "Really well done, with enexpecting turns and a insight into MI5."
    Rachel, Maidstone

    "One of the best dramas I have ever seen, and a welcome break from over stylised American shows."
    Matt Buckley, Oxfordshire

    "Really addictive and thrilling. Great drama had me on the edge of my seat."
    Harriet, London
