Spooks often surprises you in ways that you least suspect. Yes, it can thrill, but more often than not it can also break your heart. I’m not talking about corny achy breaky heart moments here either, but real moments. I loved the very gentle, very sensitive portrayal of Harry’s and Ruth’s relationship.
This is not a glamourous relationship by any means, but one that is very real. It also has some tremendous performances by Peter Firth and Nicola Walker.
Which made it all the more difficult to bear when Ruth departed. To be honest, I cried buckets.
That was three years ago, and I’m not the only Spooks fan that misses Ruth. That is why I am so happy to read this.
