Ultimate Force (ITV 2002-2008, Ross Kemp, Miles Anderson)

Published

on

Former EastEnder Ross Kemp was lured away from the BBC to join ITV and one of his first big roles was explosive, all-action drama Ultimate Force, co-created by former SAS soldier and Bravo Two Zero member Chris Ryan. Ryan appeared in the first series of the show as Blue Troop leader Johnny Bell.

Kemp plays Sergeant Henno Garvie, the tough, charismatic leader of a Special Forces SAS Red Troop, who faces action in a wide variety of dangerous situations and locations.

The crack-team have to face up to any explosive situation to keep Britain protected including hijackers, terrorists, rebel Chechnyan leaders and the deadliest security threats.

The first two series (barring the opener) were 60 minutes – this became feature length for the third series which lost a number of the regulars from the first two series but gained the first female SAS recruit.
