Although of course there are major plot holes as well, the biggest one being, "Wait, exactly how did John Bateman manage to pass himself off to MI-5 as Lucas North?"

All right, so I'm done with Season 9, and boy... where to begin.The problem is...The story. Makes. No. Bloody. Sense....I will say that RA's acting was strong enough to almost make me buy it. (Peter Firth was great too, the scene where Harry thinks he's going to his death and calls to leave a message on his daughter's voice mail almost brought me to tears.) But dang it! The man deserves better material. I think this could have been a great storyline if they had done it right (even with the same backstory but without Lucas inexplicably reverting). As it played out... it was a hot mess.

Re the improbability of John Bateman getting into MI5, it also occurred to me that the standard for plausibility is a lot higher for fiction in a modern setting, because it's basically our own familiar world and so things that just couldn't happen leap out at us a lot more. Plus, an impostor storyline is much harder to pull off in the modern world because of the very different level of access to information. I mean, if there was a storyline on Robin Hood in which it turned out that Guy was actually a low-born outlaw who killed the real Sir Guy of Gisborne five years ago while the latter was on his way to take the job as master of arms to the Sheriff of Nottingham, that would be reasonably believable -- it's not like the Sheriff would have seen Sir Guy's photos or had access to his fingerprints.
