The 12th October 2009 sees Spooks 7 released on DVD by E1 Entertainment. The BAFTA award winning hit sees the arrival of Richard Armitage (Robin Hood, North & South) as he makes his Spooks debut as Lucas North. The ratings winning series also stars Hermione Norris (Cold Feet, Kingdom), Rupert-Penry Jones (The 39 Steps, Whitechapel) and Peter Firth (Hawking).
The world is still facing the threat of Islamic terrorism and with Russia also emerging as a new super power; the MI5 team face even more frightening and deadly challenges in this latest series. Six months on after being held captive by mercenaries, agent Adam Carter (Penry-Jones) is spearheading a team against a major terrorist threat as Al Qaeda kidnap a British soldier.
When the kidnappers threaten to kill the soldier if Remembrance Sunday ceremonies take place, the team are under pressure to eliminate the danger by any means possible. As a car bomb is suspected in the vicinity of a ceremony marking the day, the heart-pounding pressure is on to detect, destroy and save thousands of lives in a race for survival.
Elsewhere Harry Pearce (Firth) finds himself a new Spook when embroiled in a secret assassination with the Russian intelligence services, the FSB. The new recruit is Harry's old protégé Lucas North (Armitage) who has been released from a Russian prison where he has been languishing for the past eight-years, but his appointment asks more questions than answers - can he come back and whose side is he on?
Prodigal daughter and long-standing MI5 agent Ros Meyers (Norris) also returns from a terrifying mission in Russia as the FSB close in on her investigation into a powerful Russian oil tycoon connected to their intelligence service.
