Macho telly

BBC3 are making a spin-off from Spooks entitled Rogue Spooks, about a gritty bunch of MI:5 operatives who don’t follow all those namby pamby rule things. Presumably they’ll drive a big black SUV with “Rogue Spooks” embossed down the side.

This will be followed by Rogue Casualty, featuring gritty doctors who don’t use anaesthetic during operations, and Rogue Robin Hood, featuring outlaws who behave impeccably and show the proper respect to the Sheriff.
