Ok, let’s keep Daniel Miller out of this
although his latest hairstyle looks like a crime against humanity. There’s still hope. But otherwise it’s this feckin’ eejit:
Yeah, right. Nothing adds up about you, John Bateman! For starters, you look ten years older than Lucas North even though you are supposed to be a flashback younger version +- 15 years. But otherwise you neither look similar to the supposed “Lucas North” original, nor is it likely that you managed to pass all the MI5 background checks in order to take Lucas’ place as a new MI5 recruit. I mean – maybe you share the same blood type, and you are of identical height and build. Documents can be forged – particularly pre-digitisation – but did no one check-in with North’s family, or did they just read on the Lucas North application file that your daddy was a protestant minister – no need to doubt and check a ‘man of god’?
Highly moralistic Lucas North – all his daddy’s son – suddenly going rogue, killing unsuspecting girls and threatening to drug his female colleague to death in a bid to blackmail Harry? Pur-lease! Pulling the “love of his life” out of his hat as if marriage with Elizaveta never happened? And being unable to somehow get Harry on his side – the mentor who is deeply in Lucas’ debt? This is a hot mess of plot holes the size of Lake Victoria.
I’ll repeat here for all to read: Season 9? A complete nightmare. From which Lucas is waking up while taking a hot shower in episode 1 of season
9 11. Actually, let’s throw season 10 and the Spooks movie into the nightmare, too, and continue after Lucas has just saved the world – once again – by identifying the teenage terrorist in the UK and stopping the bombing of the Houses of Parliament. Returning home, Lucas is in need of an extra hot shower… *cue steamy bathroom and tight undies* Breathing in deeply, Lucas steps into the shower cubicle and luxuriates in the spray of hot water. Leaning back, hot rivulets of water run down his extended neck. Lucas exhales. “Just another day in the office…”
