I’m two episodes into the BBC-to-Netflix thriller, Bodyguard.
I’m going to withhold judgment at this early stage, but I’m definitely going to keep watching. So far, I am riveted to my chair, and occasionally putting down my knitting to gawp in either tension or surprise.
Bodyguard is suspenseful (and scary: terrorism in London), with a twisty plot that is just beginning to emerge, and is blowing my mind in the early episodes. It’s sexy. It’s violent (shootings, explosions). There are favorite, familiar actors that you’ve seen in many a British mystery, sitcom or period drama. Mrs. Durrell is in it—need I say more?
If you liked MI-5 (aka Spooks), this is your thing.
Warning: the trailer above has spoilers. This review does not.
Who can resist a show starring Keeley Hawes that has been a huge hit in Britain?
