This darkly funny espionage drama follows a team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 due to their career-ending mistakes. Led by their brilliant but irascible leader, the notorious Jackson Lamb, they navigate the espionage world’s smoke and mirrors to defend England from sinister forces.

"I want my people in here doing nothing," says Lamb dryly. But when two British agents disappear in mysterious circumstances, he's forced to into action, directly after making a customary quip: "I hope they only get themselves killed," he mutters, "and don’t set an orphanage on fire."

Slow Horses is based on author Mick Herron’s award-winning crime novels, and the theme is sung by Mick Jagger no less. Critics have been largely positive, praising its mix of "slow-burn surveillance" and "punchy" dialogue.
