The series returns for a slick new season of countering Great Britain’s domestic terrorists, with Matthew MacFadyen as Tom Quinn actually quitting the team in the second hour, on principle. And Keeley Hawes as Zoe Reynolds is so besotted with a freelance photographer that she hardly notices. Even so, on loan from MI-6, Rupert Penry-Jones, as Adam Carter, and Olga Sosnovska, as his wife, Fiona, are just as handsome and just as handy in finding out who framed Tom for an assassination, which terrorist group is in the market for Red Mercury to trigger a nuclear explosion, how come someone inside the clandestine intelligence community has fingered an undercover informant to a Pakistani drug lord, and whether Israeli extremists kidnapped a delegate to Middle East peace talks. Just as intense and unscrupulous as 24, except that you can trust the women.
Saturdays. Starting January 8. 10 P.M.
