Production has started on the tenth series of Spooks.

The episodes, which will air on BBC One later this year, will feature a number of new characters.

Lara Pulver, who has starred in Robin Hood and True Blood, will join the show as an ambitious spy called Erin Watts.

Geoffrey Streatfeild will play IT expert Calum Reed, while Jonathan Hyde and Deadwood's Alice Krige have also landed roles in the series.

The tenth run of Spooks will see Harry (Peter Firth) trying to cope when one of his biggest secrets is revealed. With problems in the Middle East and Britain's strained relationship with America, Harry is forced to remember the relationships he forged during the Cold War.

The show's executive producer Simon Crawford Collins teased: "The heart of the show for the last ten years has been Harry Pearce and his increasingly thwarted relationship with the wonderful Ruth. In Harry and Ruth, Peter and Nicola [Walker] have created two of the most subtle and engaging characters in TV drama today and this series will take them both on a very unexpected journey. We hope it will be unmissable television."

Filming for Spooks is expected to continue until June.
