Bodyguard tells the fictional story of 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. When he is assigned to protect the ambitious and powerful Home Secretary Julia Montague, whose politics stand for everything he despises, Budd finds himself torn between his duty and beliefs. Responsible for her safety, is he actually her biggest threat?
The BBC commissioned the series from the then independent World Productions in 2016. After ITV Studios Global Entertainment bought the company in 2017, they handle international distribution for the series. As of 2020, in the international distribution version (of series 1), the final graphic for each episode's production company credit and copyright reads "World Productions for BBC", as originally broadcast, on BBC One, and then cuts to the retro-fitted standard "itv studios global entertainment" animated logo.

This one will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat for the 6 episodes it has.
I was hooked watching the first episode, I didn't realise just how good it was going to be. Tension, excitement and good writing, really made this series enjoyable.
It's about an man who went to war and came back and a job as security for a politician, which also involves terrorism.
The writing is simple in a way, you aren't left watching the episodes feeling heavy, it's rather easy to watch and exciting.
I highly recommend you watching this, currently as of May 2020 it's available to watch on Netflix. You won't be sorry for watching this wonderful Tv series.
