Whilst on a train with his two small children ex-soldier David Budd, a veteran of the War in Afghanistan, successfully thwarts a suicide bomber. Arriving in London, he is appointed as bodyguard to Home Secretary Julia Montague, who has a brutally direct anti-terror policy. She is grateful to David for his action and opens up about herself but David's domestic life is not ideal and Chanel, a former employee whom Julia has sacked, is out for revenge. Meanwhile, David has a secret that he is keeping from his charge.Written by

The night train sequence had originally been scheduled to be filmed aboard a train departing from London's Waterloo Station, but permission was revoked and the production relocated to Dereham in Norfolk to complete the sequence. See more »

You said it out in Helmand.
You say a lot of stuff when you've seen your best mates blown to pieces.
That if you ever found yourself right beside one of those bastards that sent us out there, you'd just close your eyes and pull the trigger. You'd still have a face. I'd still have a family.

When confronted with a suicide bomber. Assess if they are indeed a suicide bomber. Assume that they are, before assuming they are not.
If they are cooperative, have them sit down. Observe what kind of trigger they have, pressure switch or pressure release switch. If a pressure release switch you must grasp their hand and fingers to stop them from releasing pressure, duct tape over their fingers and hand so that they cannot release pressure. If a pressure switch and they are not cooperative you must stop them from applying pressure to the switch even if this means breaking all their fingers, hand and wrist so that they cannot push the switch.
Make sure there is no remote activation device (radio, cellphone). There is a proven series of procedures to "Render Safe" this. Including blocking all radio frequencies going to the bomb's receiver, transceiver.
From experience, examine the explosives. Remove all the electric detonators, wrap them in cloth (not nylon nor plastic that will cause static electricity and detonate), make sure that there are NO hidden detonators, there will be two wires per detonator. As far away from the detonators as possible one by one cut each of the wires to the detonators at different lengths (DO NOT CUT BOTH WIRES AT THE SAME TIME), tape over each end. Put each of the detonators on the ground, as far away as possible.
Partially remove the explosives if possible, examine the explosives for any hidden detonators, if none, remove the suicide vest. The triggers, booby traps, will send electricity to nothing since you removed the electrical detonators.
Removing the power (electricity, battery) is NOT advised as there are different kinds of electrical relays, cutting the power may cause a relay to close and send electricity to the detonators.
