Wow, what a brilliant start to the new series.

The story was fantastic, very sensational, and slightly scary in a “could that really happen? Maybe it could!” kind of way. I admit I only saw fifteen minutes of the first episode due to a power cut (I was mighty pissed off), but what I did see was excellent. The new woman Ros looks like a toughie, which is just what Adam needs, someone to challenge him. Was the killing of Colin really necessary though?

The second part (which I saw all of!) was FANTASTIC – the start with the plane collision imminent really got the nerves going, as I sat on the edge of the sofa chewing my nails and flinching with every punch in the fight between Zaf and the evil MI6 guy. (Who, it is nice to note, Zaf knee caps with a baseball bat at the end of the episode!) I was slightly disappointed with the lack of punishment for the traitors, and poor Juliet is now slightly crippled – which is a shame because I secretly like her as a character, she might be a “ruthless right-wing crazy who’ll stop at nothing” as Harry put it, but she’s the one you love to hate!

On a sad note, I found out that my favourite character (Ruth) is leaving this series (Nicola Walker became pregnant during filming), so I hope for once they let someone go without a struggle – maybe she should just be sent back to GCHQ. PLEASE Don’t Kill her off!
