Completely Absurd Trigger Point Review But What a Blast | Television

Published

Jhere will come a time, I suppose, when every police department will have been discovered by the broadcasters’ drama crews and mined to exhaustion. In a few years, perhaps, we’ll find it hard to care about how Polzeaths Anti-Jaywalking Squad works (who’s the mysterious stranger who keeps crossing against the light?) or the Snettisham Window Box Protection Unit (when Mrs. Addlestrops bluebells are brutally uprooted, Claire Goose as DCI Crumblebum must catch the culprit before he sets off on his lobelia). But for now, there are still unsurveyed sectors where the real drama lies.

So to the new ITV series Trigger Point, created by Daniel Brierley, produced by Line of Dutys-owned company Jed Mercurio and built around that series, woefully underutilized actor Vicky McClure. She’s playing an expo, a member of the Metropolitan Police bomb disposal team unconvincingly called, but maybe it’s just me Lana Washington. Her partner in the bomb disposal is Joel Nut Nutkins (I guess this time it’s not just me), played by Adrian Lester, with whom she served in Afghanistan.

Before long, the two pranksters witness a call to a suspected bomb factory in a tower block in London; rescuing women and children strapped inside divan beds; discovering improvised explosive devices behind the toilets, pressure plates in front; secondary devices behind the boilers; and requiring crowds to be moved farther and farther as the explosive potential increases. Then there’s all the jargon directed at their shoulder-mounted walkie-talkies (you’d have to prepare the pollysquash they say at some point, no matter how many rewinds I do).

It’s great fun as long as you set your levels of absurdity high. Go there thinking CSI: Peckham or Line of Bomb Duty or Bomby McBombface, rather than The Wire But With Real Wires or Breaking Explosively Badly and you’ll have a lot more fun. There’s Lana’s obligatory accidental near-triggering of the secondary device that forces her to stand absolutely still and not let her sweaty finger slip on the wonky light switch she’s partially pressed. in a thoughtless moment not entirely believable until Nutty McNutface defused it. Phew! Not that there was any real danger, of course, that the lead would be lost in the first 20 minutes. It’s still around this time that a Lisa Faulkners tune (if you don’t get that reference, fine, consider it obliquely inconsiderate, but still: potential spoiler avoided) starts to come together and refuses to disperse.

The third bomb is discovered under a car and they deploy that robot they used in the last episode of Mercurios (equally ridiculous and enjoyable) Bodyguard to try and defuse Richard Madden but it breaks down.

The vehicle belongs to Andy Phelan, the missing husband of the divans wife and child. Just as everyone was growing suspicious of his disappearance, he emerges from the trunk of the car. Attached to him is a suicide vest bombed the fourth! It is quality material. With all those IEDs, Messrs. Brierley and Mercurio, you really spoil us!

Naturally, Lana steps in to strip him of his vest and realizes it can be remotely triggered at any time. As gun people begin to swarm the estate in search of the potential trigger, Andy begins to feel the tension. Damn, keep quiet, Lana said, and absolutely right too. Nutso-Nut-Nut comes to help and she cuts the threads just in time. Hooray! They lead Andy to safety but the public know better than to relax. That’s four bombs and no boom. Did we lay down on the couch and adjust our seat belts for it? No. The ghost of Lisa Faulkner hovers. She holds out a spectral finger. Who will she touch? How are they BOOM! Ah.

Lana staggers to her feet, covered in debris and ash. The powers that be are now convinced that it is the work of a sophisticated terrorist cell. The remaining five episodes promise to enter the expert world of counter-terrorism policing and bomb disposal, as a campaign of violent extremists unfolds in the capital.

Maybe this will tell us something about the psychology of people walking towards danger rather than screaming and trying to run in seven different directions to get away from it. Perhaps this will tell us something about institutional sexism, as Lana continues her work in a field massively dominated by men. Or maybe he’ll be happy to stick to some clever entertainment and the occasional well-placed outburst. Whichever path you choose, just set your dials correctly and enjoy the ride.
