What is Trigger Point about?

Trigger Point is an explosive thriller about a group of bomb disposal experts, who live and work in a world where “death is always just a heartbeat away” – when a terror campaign threatens London, the “expos” are pushed past their limit, especially when they realise their squad seems to be being especially targeted.

Vicky McClure stars as Lana Washington, a bomb disposal expert who previously served in Afghanistan. You’ll recognise McClure from Line of Duty first and foremost, but perhaps also other roles like Alex Rider and Shane Meadow’s This Is England.

Meanwhile, Adrian Lester plays Joel Nutkins, another bomb disposal expert who has a close bond with Washington. Lester is a prolific actor, and you might know him from Life, Hustle, or Trauma. He’s since gone on to star in Channel 4 political thriller The Undeclared War.

Mark Stanley (Anne Boleyn), Warren Brown (Luther), and Kerry Godliman (After Life) also star.
