Bodyguard creator Jed Mercurio said the Cabinet’s so bad he can’t work out how not to kill them all off in the sequel

Bodyguard creator Jed Mercurio went on Twitter today, appearing to confirm that he is indeed working on a sequel to the hit BBC1 drama.

You’ll remember in the first one Richard Madden played the bodyguard to Home Secretary Keeley Hawes, who was blown up despite his best efforts to protect her.

And Mercurio said the current Cabinet was basically so shit – we paraphrase slightly – he was struggling to work out reasons why they shouldn’t all be offed in the first five minutes of series two.

He was moved to comment after the great David Schneider said this, about walking disaster zone James Cleverly (and other stuff).

And Mercurio said this.

Mercurio is not one to mince his words on Twitter. Remember when he said this, about a Sun story about another of his hit shows, Line of Duty?


Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio had a very NSFW response to a Sun story he said wasn’t true
