Sir David Jason returns to the BBC with his new series The Royal Bodyguard. He stars 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 marks Sir David’s first return to the BBC since Only Fools and Horses ended in 1991. The first episode aired on Boxing Day 2011, with the series continuing throughout January 2012.
The Royal Bodyguard’s picture post was completed at Molinare, with Gareth Spensley grading and Nick Anderson providing Online edit services. Our VFX department also completed 165 VFX shots over the series.
