The second series of Red and Blue from 2013, Philip Palmer's drama series focusing on the work of Lieutenant Colonel Bradley Shoreham (Tim Woodward). After leaving the British Army, Shoreham became a Consultant Subject Matter Expert. He spends his working life creating war games for training purposes. Fictional they may be but the higher the level of authenticity the greater their value to the participants. And when governments and major corporations are paying for training they expect a high return for their money.

In 'Ransomware', he's been hired by a City hedge fund to test its cyber-security in a planned exercise.

In 'Shadow', Shoreham finds himself on an oil rig in the North Sea, testing the safety protocols and the rig's security.
