Major character to return for ‘Spooks’ series finale – spoiler alert

The BBC's spy drama comes to an end after ten series this weekend

A major character in Spooks is set to return for the show’s final ever episode this weekend.

The BBC’s MI5 drama comes to its end on Sunday (October 23) after ten series.

Now it has emerged that actor Matthew Macfadyen will make an appearance in the final episode. The actor played the protagonist Tom Quinn in the first two series, before leaving early in the third series. His character was decommissioned for almost sabotaging an operation involving a sleeper agent.

A source told the Mirror: “It’s incredibly exciting to have Matthew back again, even if he’s only seen fleetingly. It will bring back all the memories of Tom and the character endured in those first few series. Viewers will be dying to know why he’s back, but they’ll have to wait until Sunday to find out.”

Meanwhile, the cast have promised that there are more shocks in store before Spooks bows out. Lara Pulver, who plays section chief Erin Watts told Digital Spy: “Few of us will survive.”
