Stephen Hunter-Dunn, Director General of MI5, informs Montague of intelligence suggesting a terrorist plan to attack Budd’s children’s school, in retaliation for his foiling of the train bombing.
The attack on the school is prevented by a police ARV, but the terrorists manage to detonate the bomb in the street, killing three police officers.
Budd’s family is relocated to a safe house, and although he is removed from Montague’s detail, she has him reinstated.
Montague’s car comes under sniper fire that kills her driver, but she and Budd survive due to the car’s armour plating. Budd pursues and corners the sniper.
After the first episode, it looked like the second would slow down and focus on the politics. Another terrorist attack ups the action and puts Budd in the middle. What does not work is the sex between the main characters… WHY ??
Bodyguard is a British television drama series, created and written by Jed Mercurio and produced by World Productions for the BBC. The six-part series stars Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes.
The series is set around the fictional character of Police Sergeant David Budd, a heroic British Army war-veteran suffering from PTSD, who is now working as a specialist protection officer for the Royalty and Specialist Protection Branch of London’s Metropolitan Police Service. He is assigned to protect the ambitious Home Secretary Julia Montague, whose politics stand for everything he despises.
Police Sergeant David Budd, an Afghanistan War veteran, is on a train to London Euston when he foils a suicide bomber’s plot to blow up the train. Due to his actions, both terrorist suspects avoid being shot, enabling them to be arrested. His heroism results in his promotion to serve on the detail of Julia Montague, the Home Secretary.
This came recommended from a Radio NZ TV reviewer. Terrific start as Budd talks down a terrorist.
The final in the last broadcast series. Series 5 has been green-lit and should appear next year.
