What's on TV - - What’s On -

David Budd (Richard Mad­den) has been try­ing to find out who set off the bomb that has had such dev­as­tat­ing con­se­quences. One of the sus­pects he con­fronts is Roger Pen­haligon, the slimy gov­ern­ment Chief Whip, and they have a big bust-up at the MP’s con­stituency surgery. Mean­while, Ju­lia’s for­mer po­lit­i­cal as­sis­tant Chanel tracks David down and starts flirt­ing…

Ever since Home Sec­re­tary Ju­lia Mon­tague died in hospi­tal after a bomb at­tack, her lover and per­sonal pro­tec­tion of­fi­cer David Budd has been try­ing to find out who set off the killer de­vice. And in this week’s episode, his search continues…

‘David’s very much the strong and silent type,’ ex­plains Richard Mad­den, who plays the Iraq war vet­eran. ‘I was at­tracted to the con­tra­dic­tions in him. There’s anger seep­ing out of him, but he’s very deter­mined.’

The se­cu­rity ser­vices are also try­ing to piece to­gether what hap­pened dur­ing the at­tack, with some sus­pect­ing David’s in­volve­ment. David, how­ever, turns his at­ten­tions to his nu­mer­ous sus­pects…

Sus­pi­cions

He sets out to dis­cover the true iden­tity of a man call­ing him­self Richard Longcross, who met with Ju­lia shortly be­fore her death. He also sus­pects the in­volve­ment of Ju­lia’s ex-hus­band and gov­ern­ment Chief Whip, Roger Pen­haligon, who’d be­come her po­lit­i­cal en­emy.

One per­son who turns up is Ju­lia’s for­mer as­sis­tant Chanel, who was fired ear­lier in the series. She tracks David down and be­gins to flirt with him.

But is there more to

Chanel’s mo­ti­va­tions than want­ing a date?

‘David is sus­pi­cious of ev­ery­body,’ ex­plains Richard, who is best­known for play­ing

Robb Stark in Game Of

Thrones. ‘But that’s his job! ‘There are so many the­o­ries and counter-the­o­ries go­ing on in this drama, view­ers will be kept forever guess­ing!’
