One fateful summer, a relentless terrorist campaign threatens the safety of Londoners.

Lana can’t help but become suspicious that the bomber is deliberately targeting her unit – but how can she prove it and expose their identity?

Trigger Point stars Vicky McClure (Line of Duty, This is England ’86) as bomb disposal operative Lana Washington and Adrian Lester (Hustle) as Joel Nutkins.

Speaking about Vicky and Adrian’s respective characters, writer Daniel Brierley said: ‘Lana is the centre of the story for me, she’s real, vibrant and complicated.

‘She really fits in with the central paradox of the story, how do you train yourself to be this cool in the face of danger and then survive in the real world and have relationships?

‘For me you can’t really have Lana without having Joel, they are part of a double act. He’s the only one who sees all the sides of her – she never has to pretend around him and he gets her.

‘They have this symbiotic relationship and they both complete the other. So I couldn’t have Lana, who is raw, vulnerable and wears her heart on her sleeve, without having a character like Joel who is the opposite.’

Other cast members include:

Mark Stanley as DI Thom YoungbloodWarren Brown as Karl MaguireKerry Godliman as Sonya ReevesCal MacAninch as Lee Robins SCO19Manjinder Virk as Samira Desai SO15Ralph Ineson as Commander BregmanNadine Marshall as Marianne HamiltonPippa Haywood as Dr MacAndrewKris Hitchen as John Hudson
