Strike Force is the eighth episode of the show's second series.
Decorated British Army Major, Samuel Curtis, is believed to be plotting a mutiny. Tom is assigned to his unit as an Army officer to uncover the plot, but finds nothing. However, they soon discover that Curtis and his men are stealing radioactive waste from a convoy.
Curtis demands that improvements be made to the military, or he'd blow the waste. As Tom gets Curtis to stand down, Harry orders a sniper to kill him. This action angers Tom, who starts showing signs that his job is getting to him. Meanwhile, Ruth is under review from GCHQ, but her work impresses them to keep her in the Grid.
