Series 6, Episode 1

Harry

On the verge of an historic peace deal with Iran, the Grid receives intelligence that Mehan Asnik, a member of Iranian intelligence who MI5 suspect is a terrorist, is preparing to carry out an attack.

Zaf

The team organises an undercover operation to assassinate Asnik in Tehran, hoping to make their bomb look like a terrorist attack. The plan goes tragically wrong when a civilian train pulls alongside the target. Harry calls to abort, but the Home Secretary insists taking out Asnik and the bomb is detonated.

Adam

Despite a sizeable death toll, Asnik survives and contacts Adam with an offer - he wants to defect and is prepared to provide valuable intelligence. Back in the UK with Asnik in their possession, Adam, Zaf and Ros are intercepted by armed mercenaries who kidnap Asnik and Zaf.

Asnik

It soon transpires that Asnik was carrying a vial of a lethal virus which was released when the bomb exploded. Someone known only as 'Copenhagen' had fed MI5 false intelligence so that they'd target Asnik and release this virus in Tehran. Now Asnik, Zaf and their kidnappers have been exposed and have just hours to live unless they receive a vaccine.

Adam

When the mercenaries demand money for the return of Zaf, Adam arranges a meeting, offering them the vaccine in exchange for Zaf and Asnik. But the vaccine is a fake - no-one even seems to know if a real vaccine exists - and the exchange goes horribly wrong.

Asnik

Zaf remains in the hands of the mercenaries and the fatally contagious Asnik is abandoned on the streets of London. The race is on to find a real vaccine; to find Asnik before he can infect more victims; to find out who 'Copenhagen' is; and to rescue Zaf from the unidentified gang of mercenaries before it's too late.
