Press pack


With the memorial for the London attack just two days away and knowledge of a second bomb, Charlie convinces the team to break Abid Malik out of prison, as the drama allowing viewers to see the future of Spooks and get even closer to the world of conspiracy and espionage concludes.


Charlie thinks Malik might be the only person who can lead them to the MI5 traitor and, hopefully, prevent another catastrophic explosion. He convinces Yates they're conducting regular surveillance on Camp Windsmere and sends Vik in undercover as an inmate.


Vik and Malik must both get to the medical room if Rob, posing as an emergency doctor, is going to get them out. Vik attacks Malik, breaking his ankle, and then fakes a seizure himself. As the team set off the prison alarms, Rob, Vik and Malik are able to escape unnoticed.


As soon as Malik is on the outside, he reveals he had a photograph of his MI5 handler, which is probably still in his London flat. Rob and Charlie head into highly radioactive London and manage to locate the photograph.


Back on the road north, Charlie and Rob quickly get to work on Malik's photo. When they realise who the traitor is, they know the whole team is in serious danger. With no means of communication, their journey home becomes a mission, not just to prevent a second explosion, but to save their own team from the lethal traitor within...


Charlie is played by Liam Boyle, Abid Malik by Philip Arditti, Yates by Lorraine Burroughs, Vik by Christopher Simpson and Rob by Andrew Knott.
