The ‘expos’ are pushed past their limit when they realise their squad seems to be being especially targeted.

Ex-military bomb disposal operative Lana is at the centre of the series and elements of her career, family and love life are all intertwined throughout.

She works alongside colleague Joel Nutkins, who bonded with Lana when they both served together in Afghanistan.

And the creator of Trigger Point, Daniel Brierley, recently revealed he always had Line of Duty’s Vicky in mind when writing the series.

Speaking at a press event, he said: “I mean, honestly, it sounds like such such a cliché, but I’d actually written it with with Vicky in mind.

“Because I think [from] the roles she’s done in the past, she has that perfect blend of courage and determination and vulnerability – that was Lana for me, and obviously Adrian’s a national treasure, so when you get them involved, it’s perfect.”
