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 and the Police. Specialist Protection Officer Budd is on high alert as Secretary Montague's hard-line stance on national security propels her further into the public eye. With his home life becoming more difficult, it appears as if Budd's natural animosity towards the Home Secretary is beginning to fade.Written by
"Pascoe House" is actually 20 Old Bailey, London, England UK, the lettering on the building is "Twenty" in real life. Opposite is actually the Old Bailey Central Criminal Court. See more »
When Sgt. Budd is clearing up the fish and chips he has just shared with the Home Secretary it is clear that there is no gun in his holster. No armed police officer is going to just take out his gun and leave it unattended so presumably this is a result of no armourer being present on set for this particular scene. See more »
Definitely in the mold of "Spooks" (called "MI-5" here in the states for some unknown reason). The plotting, the personal stories, the action scenes, of course, and the non-stop edge-of-your-seat stuff. I am up to Episode 2 - it's so good, I want it to last. Unfortunately, one of the review websites (not this one) gave out a couple of spoilers from subsequent episodes. BooHiss. But don't miss this one. You might need subtitles for a few of the actors' dialog, but one of the better series from across the pond.
