    i started watching this last week.. and it's brilliant !

    it's only a 6 episode drama, and i'm on 4/6.

    Bodyguard is a British television drama series, created and written by Jed Mercurio and produced by World Productions for the BBC. the same folk that made 'In the Line of Duty' (also brilliant !)

    The series is set around the fictional character of Police Sergeant David Budd, a heroic but volatile war veteran 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.

    the lead is played by Richard Madden (Rob Stark for all you GOT'ers out there)



    anyone else watching it? what dya think?

    Hey it had me hooked as soon as Keelyey Hawks was cast in it.
    The fact that the first 3 episode were fantastic was a nice bonus :D.
    I’m still getting over ESP 4

    So @Maximus how have you found the rest of the season & are you ready for the last ESP tonight.

    Also I can highly recommend Killing Eve I’m only up to esp 3 but it’s a absolutely brilliant greatcast very well written it’s funny when it has to be to lighten the mood as it could be really dark & downbeat oh & it has a SOLO connection so that’s another plus point.

    Ok so another British TV show I have just been binge watching is The Little Drummer Girl.

    It’s by the same company that did the Night Manager & is just as if not better then that show & it just so beautiful shot.

    It’s only 6 ESP & 5of them are already on the I Player with the 6th this Sunday so it’s a perfect time to get into it.

    nice.. i'll watch them Saturday/Sunday then.

    so many good drama/thrillers coming out right now. ITV have one called 'Dark Heart' which looks pretty good.
