-->For Queen. For Country. For Kicks.

Creator/{{BBC}}3 SpinOff from ''{{Spooks}}'', which started Sunday 10 August 2008. Aimed at a younger audience than ''{{Spooks}}''.

Set in 2013, after a terrorist attack at the 2012 Olympic Games saw a nuclear bomb set off in London. Numerous [=MI5=] operatives were killed in the blast, and many others left afterwards, so now the remnants have to rebuild their organisation. The series follows a bunch of young new recruits in these troubled times, hired because terrorists are getting younger. Yes...

This did very badly in terms of critical opinion (to the point where it's considered to have damaged the original program's reputation by association) and poorly in the ratings - the show [[{{Cancellation}} did not return]] for a second series.

!!This series contains examples of:
* AnyoneCanDie: But anyone familiar with ''Spooks'' probably saw it coming.
* CliffHanger: [[spoiler:Rachel's been shot, possibly fatally, there's only a handful of seconds left before the second bomb detonates with the team standing right next to it... and it ends]]. As mentioned above, it's unlikely we'll ever find out what happened next.
* CutShort
* DarkerAndEdgier: If possible, given the source material.
* HotterAndSexier: Especially with Creator/GeorgiaMoffett and Creator/OonaChaplin in the house.
* TagLine: The quote at the top.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture
* YoungerAndHipper
