Has anyone else noticed that the two main cops’ call signs are

Four Five
And
Three Seven

“So what?” You say.

Exactly the same call signs as Bodie and Doyle!

I kid you not - check it out if you done believe me!
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

And I could have sworn they mentioned taking someone to Decker Avenue nick - which was one of the precincts in Hill Street Blues.

Much as I love Jed M and his stuff, Sunday's ending really was terrible, "dog ate my homework" type desperation.

I think the thing about the Bodyguard and LOD is that you can't really start questioning details too closely or the whole thing falls apart.

Anyone here seen his earlier medical series, Bodies? Far and away the best thing he's done

The UK's most senior police officer, the commissioner of the Metropolitan police is less than impressed with the programme

Even less so with the incredulous Bodyguard, also a Mercurio offering.
