The Spectacular is a conspiracy thriller mini-series based on a succession of IRA attacks on English targets in the Netherlands in the late 1980s. The lead detective of the special investigation team goes on a thrilling hunt for the most ruthless and feared female member of the IRA unit.

In the late 1980s, when the Northern Irish conflict known as ‘The Troubles’ is almost as its end, the south of the Netherlands is rocked by a series of horrific IRA attacks that target English soldiers stationed at army bases in Germany, who like to come to Limburg for their nights out. A dedicated team of local detectives is tasked with catching the terrorists, who like to see themselves as freedom fighters. As the story develops, the investigation team comes to suspect that high-ranking Dutch and international authorities are doing everything they can to prevent arrests. Meanwhile, the terrorist unit are preparing an attack of unprecedented proportions in the Netherlands, known as ‘The Spectacular’. The story is told from the perspectives of two women, on different sides of the law. Lead detective Jeanine Maes (Hadewych Minis) is hot on the trail of her nemesis, the mysterious Fiona Hughes (Aoibhínn McGinnity), the most ruthless and only female member of the IRA unit, and finally meets her face-to-face.
