'Line Of Duty' Fans Will Love Vicky McClure's New ITV Drama 'Trigger Point’
Brand new show Trigger Point by ITV has a similar premise to BBC's police anti-corruption drama, except it's all about counter terrorism policing. Plus, it even stars the hit police drama's Vicky McClure.
The show is set to be a high octane thriller that looks into the terrifying work of the Met Police's Bomb Disposal Squad where officers risk their lives to save others.
It sounds terrifying but thrilling - no doubt bound to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Vicky, who you will likely know as Detective Inspector Kate Fleming, will now play front line officer Lana Washington, an experienced bomb disposal operative.
She sounds a little bit like she'll be a law unto herself (we're thinking Marcella-esque?) as the broadcaster has described her character as "reckless and out of control".
She will be pushed to breaking point in the programme when explosive devices threaten the residents and tourists of London during a terrorist campaign.
But as she deep dives into the case, Lana starts suspecting the bomber is targeting her particular unit - but can she discover the bomber's identity before people get hurt?

It really is a high stakes drama that sounds set to grip and we have no doubts, given that it's being produced by Jed Mercurio's HTM Television, the very writer of Line of Duty. Yesss!
We did say it was bringing all the vibes of the BBC show didn't we?
Vicky McClure said of the new show: "So grateful to be working with Jed again. I'm really looking forward to creating a strong, bright and troubled character in Lana Washington.
"Daniel Brierley has produced a brilliant and nail-biting script. I can't wait to get started later this year."
You heard her - get those nails at the ready.
There is currently no set release date for Trigger Point, but as it's being filmed later this year, we're hopeful we'll see this show sometime in 2021.
Fingers crossed it's after Line Of Duty finishes for good. One thrilling police show at a time, please.
