43. Body­guard

The Mail on Sunday - Event - - FRONT PAGE -

You missed it? Re­ally? The thriller that had the na­tion gripped last month stars Richard Mad­den as David Budd, a heroic but volatile war vet­eran now work­ing as a pro­tec­tion of­fi­cer and as­signed as the body­guard to Kee­ley Hawes’ Home Sec­re­tary (above, with Mad­den). The plot, by Line Of Duty writer Jed Mer­cu­rio, zig-zags through the se­ries as first Budd goes to bed with his new boss, then saves her from a ter­ror at­tack and fi­nally finds him­self the chief sus­pect in a se­ries of grisly mur­ders. The most talked­about show of the year, it richly de­serves its place in this list. BBC iPlayer, 1 se­ries A fan once pre­sented ac­tor Richard Mad­den of Body­guard with a box of minia­tures of him­self, dressed in the cos­tumes of ev­ery role he’d ever played. He still has it.
