The Undeclared War

NOTE: this show was promoted as starting in September 2023, but never aired.

Set in 2024, The Undeclared War tracks a leading team of analysts buried in the heart of GCHQ, secretly working to ward off a series of cyber-attacks on the UK in the run up to a general election.

The series lifts the veil on the most urgent battle of our time.

When a routine stress test of Internet infrastructure goes awry, 21-year-old GCHQ intern Saara Parvin suddenly finds herself operating on the invisible frontier of high-stakes cyber warfare.

In a thrilling cat and mouse game, Saara and the team at GCHQ must try to stay one step ahead and anticipate their opponents' every hidden move.

The clock is ticking as a battle with high stakes and unpredictable enemies takes place entirely online, with very real consequences.

But how do you win a war most of the public don't know you're fighting?

In the series premiere: Saara, a second-year computer science student at London University, wins a highly sought-after work experience place at GCHQ.

Her first day coincides with GCHQ's stress-test of the security of telecommunications Internet infrastructure, during which a significant part of the UK's Internet suddenly goes down.

Initially thought to be a consequence of the stress test, it is soon shown to be the result of a more deliberate attack.

Saara joins GCHQ's Malware Department, charged with discovering how the virus was unleashed, and quickly finds herself operating on the invisible frontier of high-stakes cyber warfare.
