Final season of 'Spooks' to air on BBC1, Sunday nights
The tenth and final season of the MI5 spy-thriller series "Spooks" will be showcased on BBC during Sunday prime time. The swansong has been reduced to just six episodes from its usual ten, and will focus on the MI5 chief Harry Pearce (played by Peter Firth).
Producers have promised a "high octane thrilling finale" for the show, which has had a string of controversial storylines.
BBC1 will air the final season at 9pm opposite hit show "Downton Abbey" on rival station ITV1.
A BBC spokesperson played down the clash, stating: "Downton and Spooks are very different shows and offer a real alternative for audiences. This is the last ever series of Spooks and we wanted to celebrate this and make it a special event for viewers in the Sunday 9pm slot. It is not unusual for drama to go up against drama."
