I'm toying with buying it on DVD as I'm a little AR and like to start at the beginning... is this a good idea or should I just leap in?

I'd watch from series 1 if only to drool over the delectable Matthew Macfadyen.

Then you can sob when he leaves and perk up when Rupert Penry-Jones joins

Eye candy aside, tis also brilliant tellysmile

And Richard Armitage in Series 7 [drool]. Very well written, very well acted, fantastic programme. Definately start at the beginning, but don't get attached to any of the characters, as you never know who's going to get blown up, garotted, boiled in the deep fat fryer...

Aaaagh! The deep fat fryer! I had nightmares about that!

Yes, def start from the beginning (It's a very good place to start!)

VulpusinaWilfsuit Mon 19-Oct-09 10:40:33

Oh god YES! Watch them ALL. And then watch them again.

Yes- useful also with rewind and watch again element of dvd as sometimes it's very clever and technical and completely over my little head.....

oh yes. i wasn;t keen myself, british spy drama...bound to be pants and at best like the bloody bill or some shite.

but it is so not - its really really good/

When is it coming back? I adore 'Spooks' - even the opening credits make my heart race.

Yes, the deep-fat fryer will live forever in my memory. Simply horrible!

Yes. Watch it. Watch it now.

Apparently coming back soon, like within weeks. Was in my sky mag. Yaay!

PacificWerewolfwoohood Mon 19-Oct-09 21:18:35

I bought all the box sets in a sale after christmas, and LOVED them, dh and I became addicted.

I am counting down the days to seeing Lucas North again [swoon]

When is it starting again!
I just became a convert for the last series; tuned in to see Richard Armitage and was instantly hooked. grin

Yes you must start immediately.

Oh yes Richard Armitgae was shirtless in some of the last series<drool>

ShrinkingViolet Tue 20-Oct-09 16:33:20

and is going to be shirtless in some of this too (and in bed with a gorgeous blonde I believe)

Doyouthinktheysaurus Tue 20-Oct-09 16:48:08

I love spooks, it's fab.

Anyone know when it's back?

VulpusinaWilfsuit Tue 20-Oct-09 22:34:18

End of October or November I heard somewhere. So VERY soon <hyperventilates>

4th November at 9pm - not long to wait!!
Yipee!

You have to watch from the beginning. It's a really great show. It's the only thing me and DH watch together.

The deep fat fryer was grim but I also had sleepless nights (literally) after the 'torture house' episodes.

So brace yourself.
