MI-5 in Britain is similar to the CIA in the United States.
The production of MI-5 used a lot of modern, technical techniques including split-screen action.
MI-5 has the distinction of airing the most-complained-about-in-the-UK episodes of the year for two years in a row. In 2002, the episode titled, "Looking After Our Own" contained a disturbing scene where Helen Flynn (played by Lisa Faulkner) was tortured with a deep fat fryer and then shot in the head. (The boiling fat was actually cold tea) In 2003, the episode titled, "The Nest of Angels" had some horrifically realistic scenes involving Muslim suicide bombers.
