An adrenaline fuelled contemporary action series based on the international best selling book by ex-SAS veteran, Chris Ryan. Strike Back is a compelling story of betrayal, glory, redemption and revenge played out through the interlinking lives of two former soldiers: military hero Hugh Collinson (Andrew Lincoln) and discharged veteran John Porter (Richard Armitage). On the eve of the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Porter leads a Special Forces unit on a daring hostage rescue mission into the heart of Basra, culminating in a disastrous turn of events for him and Collinson. Porter bears the burden of guilt, with the repercussions haunting him for years, until an opportunity presents itself to return to Iraq and redeem himself. After several years apart, Porter and Collinson’s are about to collide once again.
