TV show description:
From creator Jed Mercurio, the Bodyguard TV show is a British crime drama. The thriller centers on an Afghanistan war veteran Sergeant David Budd (Madden), who is now working as a Specialist Protection Officer for the Royalty and Specialist Branch (RasP) of London’s Metropolitan Police Service. David is separated from his wife, Vicky (Rundle), who works as a ward sister (i.e. nurse) at a London hospital and is the mother of his two children
After he assists in thwarting a terrorist attack, Budd is assigned to protect Home Secretary Julia Montague (Hawes), who was a major proponent of the conflict in which he fought. Now the very life of this ambitious, powerful politician is in his hands.
As the story unfolds at the highest levels of government, David Budd finds himself torn between his sworn duty and his deepest beliefs. While Secretary Montague’s security is his job, he could prove a threat to her very safety.
When Budd’s connection to the shooter is revealed, he becomes a police target. But his reunion with Chanel creates much more serious problems.
First aired: October 24, 2018.
