The Protectors Season 1 Episode 15: The Bodyguards

The Bodyguards Title Shot

The Protectors have been asked to be bodyguards by the police for a dead man. There are people who want this man dead but believe his death was faked to reappear at a time that is best. Harry is being dragged by a leash to a contact from a mysterious letter he received. There is a hefty price on the knowledge of whether this man is really dead or not but Harry isn’t telling. A few cannot take the risk until they know but why.

Personal Synopsis

A strange story of the police trying to sniff out the criminals from a bank robbery, using a dead man as the bait. I actually found this episode to be written rather well by Don Chaffey, it just felt different from the regular episodes. I felt compelled to watch it intently to avoid losing any part of the plot. A great show and definitely recommended.
