Spooks Code 9 in September
Contender Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of [Spooks] Code 9 on 8th September 2008 priced at £24.99. The new BBC Three drama from the producers behind Spooks and Life on Mars comes to DVD the day after the last episode airs.
6 episodes are spread across 2 discs. There are no announced extras.
Synopsis: The year is 2013. London has been evacuated following a nuclear bomb and the country’s power base has shifted north. In the wake of the attack, MI5 must completely restructure and establish field offices across the UK, working to gather intelligence from the very heart of local communities. They need young, new officers on the ground, and fast. Luckily, Britain’s youth is more than up to the challenge and is fighting back from the attack with a new sense of patriotism, combined with the hedonism that comes from being face to face with their own mortality. It is members of this new generation of patriots who help make up MI5’s new Field Office 19.
Led by experienced spook Hannah (Joanne Froggatt, Life On Mars) the rookie team is made up of Charlie (Liam Boyle, Drop Dead Gorgeous) a mathematician and genius problem solver, Rachel (Ruta Gedmintas, The Tudors) an ex-police officer with ambitions to be a leader, and Jez (Heshima Thompson, Prime Suspect: The Final Act) a new breed of spook altogether – a former criminal gone straight. Vik (Christopher Simpson, Brick Lane) chose MI5 over a career in his family’s business, whilst Rob (Andrew Knott, The History Boys) was a junior doctor at the time of the bomb and Kylie (Georgia Moffett, Doctor Who) a psychology student, just back from her gap year.
