    Bodyguard might be [creator Jed Mercurio's] Homeland. ... From its opening sequence, a breathless 20-minute set piece on a passenger train, it's clear that no loyalty will go untested or plot untwisted. [19/26 Oct 2018, p.91]

    This show excels at both the daring, gasp-inducing twist and the methodical construction of slower-burning thrills. The finale, for instance, features a lengthy sequence of almost physically painful tension, a bravura bit of television that could only exist on a show in which we’ve been primed to understand that truly anything can happen.

    The story takes wild, violent leaps amid myriad conspiracies, leading to a crazy, nail-biting climax that is both preposterous and wholly satisfying. Some binges feel like a slog. Bodyguard is more of a race, well worth the run. [15-28 Oct 2018, p.9]
