For anyone who might not yet have seen RA listed in Capt America cast:
Followed Sue's clue re Vicky Frost's blog and the discussion of the possible significance of this Turner painting (The Battle of Trafalgar) making an appearance Spooks, Ep 4. Find links below..
BTW, there's a comment at the below blog proposing that the Lucas ship tattoo might be connected to the above painting...(My reflection: how exactly did RA convince the Spooks writers that a massive number of tatts for LN was a fine idea?? We know he felt their presence would prevent gratuitous shirtless scenes...might he have sold it as an opportunity for them to weave a few of the spy's body artwork*cough* into future plots??..
Have to ask yourself if a female MD would really not find it highly unprofessional to engage in a heated embrace in the hospital corridor while other staff members strolled by??. Agree with Sue that the nearest broom closet would've been a far better location for a snog:) ...teehee..
Be prepared for opinions with which you might strongly disagree..;)
Synopsis - Ep 5
Spooks Ep 5/8 - Monday 18 October - 9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE
www.bbc.co.uk/spooks In a move to bring peace to Palestine and Israel, the American President is en route to London to chair secret talks between peace negotiators from both countries, as the tense spy drama continues. Beth Bailey and Dimitri Levendis go undercover as Home Office liaison officers at the talks, while the rest of Section D are tasked with ensuring nothing will jeopardise the long-awaited occasion.
Preparations appear to be going smoothly until a journalist threatens to run the story. Ruth Evershed convinces her not to print it but the implications are clear: someone does not want the peace talks to go ahead. The team frantically search for the source of the leak and Tariq Masood goes to work on tracing calls made to the journalist.
Lucas North picks up the trail and makes several discoveries which indicate the culprit has only one agenda – assassination. With the murder of the US President a very real threat, Section D must find the suspect before they are faced with an international scandal of unimaginable proportions.
With time running out, Harry Pearce and his team are put under immense pressure to locate the sniper and ensure the President is not put at risk. As events unfold it becomes clear that the real threat to the President is much closer than anyone had realised.
