Four-Part Empire Special on The History of Spooks- Richard Armitage Speaks

here. There are four parts, so keep scrolling.

Excerpt:

ARMITAGE: Fans didn’t like [the Lucas North/John Bateman twist]. They were very upset about that turnaround. I feel like they felt like the rug was being pulled out from under their feet. But I remember sitting down with (producer) Andrew Woodhead before we went into series nine and he said, “We’ve got this crazy idea for the character, what do you think?” and I said, “Yeah, do it!”

Can’t help thinking I wish he’d said ” no way!.” But maybe he did.

Thanks to Micra for sending this.

    • Couldn’t agree with you more. He’s such a graceful gentleman.

      I can’t help but remember what Nicola said in the DVD extras of Series 9- how painful it’d been to see him having to undo the painstaking work he’d done with Lucas, including the detailed backstory he’d written for the character.
