With the UK terror threat level raised to severe, Home Secretary Montague holds secret meetings with the Director General of the Security Service, side-stepping her own Minister for Counter Terrorism...
A seemingly cold but very passionate policewoman goes head to head with a seemingly passionate father who is in fact a cold serialist in this procedural out of Belfast. The only thing they share is their common complexity.
Marcella Backland left the Metropolitan Police for the sake of her family, only to have her husband leave her. She returns to her job on the murder squad, investigating a case that seems disturbingly familiar to her.
Bodyguard tells the fictional story of David Budd, a heroic but volatile war veteran now working as a Specialist Protection Officer for the Royalty and Specialist Protection Branch of London's Metropolitan Police Service. When he is assigned to protect the ambitious and powerful Home Secretary Julia Montague, whose politics stand for everything he despises, Budd finds himself torn between his duty and beliefs. Responsible for her safety, is he actually her biggest threat?
First off everyone giving this below a 6 is either nitpicking the show to death or grading the last episode on a HUGE HUGE HUGE curve. The kind of curve where you would give an otherwise 10 episode a 1 because you didn't like the finale. That to me is just dumb. WORST CASE this is a 6 although and if I had to chose who I would be giving out awards to it would be Keeley Hawes who plays Britain's Home Secretary Julia Montague. She played the roll with the right amount of toughness and intrigue. I thought not at least nominating her was one of many snubs.
