Series where everything changed?

zzQuestion Series where everything changed?
Series 5 for me has always been the series where eveything changed.. with various characters departing and various characters joining, it felt like a lot of things changed, not only with storylines but with the way the show was shot.

Then again, it wasn't until Series 6 that the threaded storylines were brought in..

What do you think?

RE: Series where everything changed?
Just watched first episode of S7, which confirms what I had stated otherwise : Spooks has become by Series 5 -as confirmed in S7- a Hollywood TV Show copycat, in the unbearable likes of "24" or James Bond.
But a least James never tried to be credible in the first place!

Spoiler: show
North and Carter finding their way thru the streets of London without the hint of a traffic jam ? Oh my! Drove in London lately ?

Crossing the city to diffuse a bomb all by themselves ? (If you really want to avoid a tragedy and are miles away, the best course of action is NOT to drive there yourself!)

Jump in the rigged car and drive it away ? Yeah right....

Not sure I'll go thru all of S7. Certainly won't buy S8

Ruth RE: Series where everything changed?
I just finished a re-watch of Series 5 and what I noticed was that in almost every episode there is someone from within the government that is either working against them or out-right screwing them over. Here's a list:

Episode 1 & 2: Michael Collingwood, MI-6
Episode 3: No one
Episode 4: James Allen, Foreign Secretary
Episode 5: Oliver Mace, Chairman of the JIC
Episode 6 & 7: Neil Sternin, MI-6
Episode 8: Charles Lee, chief legal counsel for Downing Street
Episode 9: John Russell, MI-6
Episode 10: Janet Wheeler, Science Advisor to the PM

I haven't been making notes on other series as to how often the foe is someone from within, but it really struck me with this series. Now I'm curious enough that I want to go back and remind myself of how much this happened in the other series.

Zaf: "Shouldn't you be in prison or something?"
Ros: "This is the something."
