The official overall synopsis for Slow Horses reads:
'Slough House is an administrative purgatory for MI5 service rejects who have bungled their job but have not been sacked. Those consigned there are known as "slow horses". They are expected to endure dull, paper-pushing tasks, along with occasional mental abuse from their miserable boss, Jackson Lamb, who expects them to quit out of boredom or frustration. Life in Slough House is defined by drudgery. Yet the Slow Horses somehow get involved investigating schemes endangering Britain.'
The show is based on the 'Slough House' series of novels with Jackson Lamb as the main protagonist, written by Mick Herron.
It stars Oldman, Jack Lowden, Kristin Scott Thomas, Saskia Reeves, Olivia Cooke, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Steven Waddington, Dustin Demri-Burns, Paul Higgins, Aimee-Ffion Edwards and Kadiff Kirwan.
The synopsis for season three:
'In Season 3, a romantic liaison in Istanbul threatens to expose a buried MI5 secret in London. When Jackson Lamb and his team of misfits are dragged into the fight, they find themselves caught in a conspiracy that threatens the future not just of Slough House but of MI5 itself.'
