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 keeps 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.

The Bodyguard has wowed audiences and obtained huge viewing figures. I'm slow to start, but just watched episode one. That has to be one of the most gripping, tense things I've watched in years. Shows are so often slow to start, but The Bodyguard kicks off in style, the sequences on board the train were fantastic. The second half of the episode almost seemed like a let down compared to the first, but it was still excellent, it sets the scene, introduces the characters, and if Mercurio's past work is anything to go by, this is going to be a great series. 8/10
