In 2013 the world endures a nuclear attack. With much of London devastated, MI5 set up field offices in the north of England. Six new officers join the MI5 and their mission is to search for the bombers, which could end up becoming more close to home than they realise.
David Wolstencroft's counter-terrorist spy drama SPOOKS is launched into the near future in the innovative new six-part drama SPOOKS: CODE 9. Set in the year 2013 following a devastating nuclear bomb attack on the capital, the show centres on the bright young recruits of MI5's new Field Office 19. After the city's evacuation, teams such as theirs have been set up all over the country to tackle any further threats to the nation's safety. With limited training and experience but with unflinching determination and a fierce patriotic spirit, the new recruits face danger at every turn.
Charlie (Liam Boyle), Rachel (Ruta Gedmintas), Jez (Heshima Thompson), Vik (Christopher Simpson), Rob (Andrew Knott) and Kylie (Georgia Moffett), all come from widely different backgrounds and possess a range of invaluable skills and talents. Hand-picked by their experienced Field Office Leader Hannah (Joanne Froggatt), they must come together and work as a team for the sake of Queen and country. Frenetically-paced, visually-striking and achingly-hip, SPOOKS: CODE 9 introduces you to a future devoid of rules and structure, where protecting your country has never been so much fun.
