Bodyguard Viewers 'Spot Julia Montague Alive' In Series Finale

BBC's gripping drama, Bodyguard, came to a dramatic end on Sunday evening, and viewers have been left with so many questions.

The finale ended by revealing that David Budd, played by Richard Madden, was actually one of the good guys after he successfully took on a series of villains guilty of plotting against Julia Montague.

Viewers were left guessing right up until the final seconds but one scene in particular threw fans into a tiz as Julia was 'spotted' in a window.

For a matter of seconds, the camera cut to a woman looking out her window while David argued with Chief Superintendent Lorraine Craddock outside her house.

Confused viewers then rushed to Twitter to question whether others had also noticed 'Julia' in the window.

One viewer wrote: "Did I just see Julia In the window? #Bodyguard".

"Nobody wants to talk about the momentary cut to the silhouette of an unknown individual by the curtain in the upstairs window of the police lady's house? Okay then #bodyguard," another asked.

A third questioned: "In the scene with Luke and Lorraine... Did anyone else think the person at the window above the garage might be Julia? #Bodyguard."

Thankfully, viewers should eventually get some answers to their questions after creator Jed Mercurio confirmed another three series of the drama could be in the pipeline.

"We have been very fortunate with the success of series one," Jed told The Sun.

"It's probably fair to say we would probably approach any thoughts of a second series with the idea that it would create an opportunity for a third or fourth.

"To adopt a sporting phrase, we kind of decided to leave everything on the field for series one.

"If the ratings hadn't been quite so high, then possibly everybody involved including the BBC would have said 'Well that was a nice little series but we're just going to leave it at that and there won't be any more'.

"So you are hostage to fortune in that sense. And we do feel very privileged and fortunate that there's been such a response that it gives us that opportunity to at least think about doing more."
