Danny Hunter (David Oyelowo)
Danny Hunter (David Oyelowo)
Character Info
Actor Page


Danny was young, sharp and there's no doubt that he was good at his job, but sometimes he was a little over anxious to prove it. He didn't fail to notice the glamour and excitement of being part of MI5, and sometimes it went to his head. However, no-one could touch him for surveillance skills.

After getting himself up to his eyeballs in debt, and committed to paying high rents for his luxury flat, Danny lost his flat-mate in a catastrophic operation. Luckily for Danny, Zoe agreed to move into the spare bedroom. Despite all their differences the two young Spooks made a good team, living together. It makes life a lot easier when you don't have to keep your profession a secret from your flat-mate.

Danny's confidence took a serious knock when colleague Tom was de-commissioned from the service and Zoe, whom he had deep feelings for, was forced into hiding with her boyfriend after an operation went wrong. Danny then met a sad and untimely death at the hands of a terrorist.
