TV show description:      
An action and military TV series, this show focuses mainly on Michael Stonebridge and Damien Scott; two members of a top-secret intelligence agency known as Section 20.

A clear-thinking and reliable soldier, British Sergeant Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) brings strategic clout to Section 20. He and his wife Kerry are the picture of a perfect couple, but there’s more going on in his family life than meets the eye.

Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) is a former Delta Force commando who was discharged on the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. His confidence with a weapon is matched only by his way with women. While his cocky style is often at odds with his more staid colleagues, he always gets the job done.

Captain Kate Marshall (Eva Birthistle) is a highly educated, highly trained, highly attuned military intelligence analyst. She’s no desk jockey though and is actually one of the Section 20’s most skilled and experienced undercover operatives.

Colonel Eleanor Grant (Amanda Mealing) is the no-nonsense commander of Section 20, an elite military black ops unit within the British government that focuses on high-risk, top-priority targets. She’s clear, authoritative and smart as hell.

Captain Oliver Sinclair (Rhashan Stone) is Section 20’s chief intelligence officer, responsible for the logistics and management of the entire team and the high-tech mobile unit known as the crib. In all day-to-day operations, he is Colonel Grant’s right hand man.

Sergeant Julia Richmond (Michelle Lukes) is Section 20’s chief communications officer, responsible for maintaining contact with agents in the field and all other relevant transmissions. She is exceptionally bright, technologically adept and proficient in several languages.

    WHYYYYYYYY! are they cancelling the best action show to ever come on TV? They can replace any of the characters. I realize that Stonebridge and Scott are great but certainly there are others that can pull this off? That’s the beauty of this show characters are replaceable. You can kill people off, you can have them reassigned. It’s time for Stonebridge and Scott to retire and get some fresh soldiers in there too many of the bad guys know who they are. It’s all about the story lines.

    I have just discovered this very intriguing series. I have enjoyed it very much. I was very disappointed to find out the series was cancelled. It was a nice change from the same old programs available now. Hope they decide to bring it back!

    I think that the tv show “strikeback” has enough of a following to go on for at least two more seasons. The idea of section 20 going around the world and bringing the heat is worth watching. Cinemax is not doing themselves justice by pulling the plug on the show. At least bring in some fresh faces and mix it up with some A-list actors or do a spin off.

      Agree 100% w/Dennis; although I think he meant to say “injustice” rather than “justice.” I think I’ve read here or elsewhere that the cancellation was due in pertinent part to the principal actors not wanting to continue, especially one of them who has gotten roles in some major motion pictures of late but I love the idea of bringing in some new blood, although not so much on a spin off as they tend not to fare so well and I want to see Strike Back continue in its present configuration. Good comment, Dennis! Hope they change their minds and the injury which has delayed the filming of the current Season may give them the opportunity to put a lot more thought into cancelling and, perhaps, they will change their minds… can only hope!
