US Bodyguard fans left baffled by 'mom' references

Share article:

American fans of "Bodyguard" have been left baffled by the show - mistaking Keeley Hawes" character for the mum of Richard Madden's alter-ego.

Some Stateside viewers of the hit BBC One drama have been left confused after Richard's character, personal protection officer David Budd, called Keeley's alter-ego, Home Secretary Julia Montague - who he gets jiggy with in the programme - "ma'am", but they thought he was saying "mom".

One wrote: "The whole time I've been thinking David Budd in The Bodyguard has been saying "Mom" but it's "Ma'am" . Thank god (sic)"

Another posted: "Took me 15 minutes to figure out it wasn't his mom. All in all a good show so far though. Bodyguard-Netflix-check it out (sic)"

One shared: "I can't tell if he is saying mom or ma'am to this lady (sic)"

One posted: "What's with this marm thing? I noticed the same thing in James Bond. I get it's supposed to mean ma'am but it sounds like they're calling their female superior mom (sic)"

The BBC show aired in the UK earlier this year, where it was a huge hit, and is now being shown on Netflix.

Creator Jed Mercurio recently hinted the programme could get another three series.

He said: "We have been very fortunate with the success of series one.

"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.

"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."
