Whilst on a train with his two small children ex-soldier David Budd, a veteran of the War in Afghanistan, successfully thwarts a suicide bomber. Arriving in London, he is appointed as bodyguard to Home Secretary Julia Montague, who has a brutally direct anti-terror policy. She is grateful to David for his action and opens up about herself but David's domestic life is not ideal and Chanel, a former employee whom Julia has sacked, is out for revenge. Meanwhile, David has a secret that he is keeping from his charge.Written by

When Budd looks up the Home Secretary's voting history, there is a sentence that shows she consistently votes in favour of UK military action overseas, which ends with a period. When the camera zooms in on the sentence, there is no ending punctuation. See more »
You said it out in Helmand.
You say a lot of stuff when you've seen your best mates blown to pieces.
That if you ever found yourself right beside one of those bastards that sent us out there, you'd just close your eyes and pull the trigger. You'd still have a face. I'd still have a family.

Excellent premise, good acting, but too much profanity
I saw this while browsing and it was rated TV-MA, the same as The Walking Dead. I read the premise of a veteran with a dim view of politicians having to protect one and found it interesting, notably from a British point of view. I enjoyed the acting from the main character, he played the role very well. After repeated use of the F-word, I was done though. Why can't modern shows deliver a good story like this one w/o literally fouling things up? If they cut down on the profanity, I'd easily rate this an 8/10. Reading more of the reviews it looks like I did not miss much in the finale, so not a great loss overall.
