Seasons in Detail



Ultimate Force

Ross Kemp heads an ensemble cast in ULTIMATE FORCE, an explosive prime-time action adventure series for ITV1, following the exploits of a crack SAS troop.

Ross plays Sergeant Henno Garvie, the tough and charismatic leader of Red Troop, who with his men puts his life on the line in the name of his country.

Co-devised by decorated SAS soldier turned best-selling author Chris Ryan ("The One That Got Away"), ULTIMATE FORCE co-stars Jamie Draven, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Tony Curran, Danny Sapani and Elliot Cowan as members of the elite fighting force.

Alex Reid, Jamie Bamber and Miles Anderson play officers in the 22nd Regiment, while Chris Ryan is also the series adviser and joins the cast in the role of SAS sergeant Johnny Bell.

Packed with dramatic stunts and spectacular special effects, the six-part series offers a no-holds-barred, exciting look at the Special Air Service - a regiment shrouded in secrecy and mystique.

In the special 90-minute opening episode, it's sink or swim when newcomers Jamie Dow and Alex Leonard (Jamie Draven and Sendhil Ramamurthy) face the rigours of the SAS Killing House. The hostage rescue exercise proves all too real when the recruits are called to their first operation - a life or death bank siege.

Missions facing Red Troop in the following one-hour episodes include stopping the release of a lethal anthrax mutation and infiltrating an anti-capitalist group set on assassination.
