Danny is a member of an armed response unit and is the new protagonist of the show. He is a very complex character. On the surface, he’s incredibly driven and ambitious, great at his job and rules his team with an iron fist.
There are many different layers to him and he’s got a lot of issues that he’s dealing with. In episode one, he’s put under investigation, and as the story unfolds we realise the inner workings of his character and what is motivating him to do these dangerous and unpredictable things.
