David Budd is a man on a mission. He’s convinced that a conspiracy at the heart of government led to the death of Home Secretary Julia Montague and now he believes he’s got the evidence to prove it.
With the mysterious kompromat (that’s compromising material) in hand he should be able to prove his theory, prove his innocence and catch the killer, right? Wrong. Bodyguard is a Jed Mercurio drama and if there’s one thing we know about Mr Mercurio it’s that he never makes things easy for his characters.
