Drama 8.30pm, Seven
With a grisly introduction, Strike Back gives us Section 20 agents Michael Stonebridge ( Philip Winchester) and Kate Marshall ( Eva Birthistle), who fail to rescue fellow recruit John Porter ( Richard Armitage) from a Pakistani strong-hold.
Enter Damian Scott, played by Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton. The dishonourably discharged agent operates by his own rules. Scott is reeled in after previously working with Porter, but finds the bureaucratic red tape hard to swallow.
But when the team witness Porter’s harsh execution, amidst the grief, Scott pinpoints a message that could bring down a mysterious hell-man named Latif.
As the team relocate to New Delhi, Scott and Stonebridge slip under the radar of 16 terrorists setting up a siege to foil their plans from the inside.
