Bodyguard: Episode 3

As the terrorist threat increases, PS David Budd strives to prevent the home secretary Julia Montague from falling victim to an assassination plot.

As the capital shudders in the wake of two terrorist attacks, specialist protection officer PS David Budd is more under pressure than ever to keep the home secretary Julia Montague safe. The threat to her life does nothing to curb Julia's political ambitions, as her counterterrorism bill takes another step towards being made law, provoking political rivalries.
With the police marginalised from the investigation into the attacks in favour of the security service, David is caught between his new-found loyalty to Julia and his superiors' demands for intelligence on her activities.

Quite enjoying this, but having one detective repeat a fact to another detective that both of them already know because the writer thinks the audience is stupid was a false note for me (the rental car is identified as rented by an "Adrian lastname", one detective says to the other. The other replies, "That's the same alias used to get into Pascoe House!". Yes, I know, thinks the first detective, that's why I fucking told you the name in the first place.)

Other than that, the episode was fantastic.
