Synopsis

Sir David Jason stars in The Royal Bodyguard as Captain Guy Hubble, an ex-guardsman who saw action in Cyprus and Northern Ireland.

Now Head of Security at Buckingham Palace car park, he is surprisingly appointed as Royal Bodyguard after saving the Queen's life in an act of bravery on the day of the State Opening of Parliament.

Hubble takes his new role very seriously but soon starts to upset foreign ambassadors, his colleagues and members of the public. He even manages to endanger Royal security repeatedly and on a colossal scale, yet somehow comes up smelling of roses every time.

The Royal Bodyguard also stars Timothy Bentinck, Geoffrey Whitehead and Tim Downie, and guest stars David Walliams.

The Royal Bodyguard is written by Justin Sbresni and Mark Bussell (The Worst Week Of My Life) and is a Hat Trick / Busby production.
