The Interceptor is a British drama television series that premiered on BBC One on June 10, 2015, and ran through July 29, 2015. Tony Saint wrote the eight-part series, which was produced by BBC Drama Productions. After one season, the show was cancelled. According to OT Fagbenle, who plays agent Ash, the show was cancelled due to a BBC management shift.
The show follows a new law enforcement team tasked with apprehending some of the UK’s most wanted criminals. The series is based on Kris Hollington’s co-written book of the same name, which chronicles the career of former customs agent Cameron Addicott.
In an operation at London Waterloo station, Special Agent Marcus “Ash” Ashton (Fagbenle), an HM Revenue and Customs agent, and his partner Tommy (Lonsdale) apprehend a drugs shipper. While his boss is satisfied with a conviction for 3 kg of cocaine, Ash is looking for a more serious criminal.
Tommy is severely injured in a car accident as a result of the subsequent procedure, and Ash is suspended. Following that, Cartwright (Stewart), the head of top-secret UNIT (Undercover Narcotics Investigation Team), approaches him in a pub, and upon entering UNIT’s headquarters, he sees a familiar face, his Customs training officer Valerie (Ashbourne).

Does Jj Stop Nuclear Missiles, as The Interceptor Finale Explains?
Yes, JJ is able to launch the interceptors and destroy the missiles before they reach their destination. JJ is forced to improvise as Alexander pours acid on the command centre desk. To launch the interceptors, she has carry a laptop outside the base to another power source, but she manages to do so on time.
What Happens to Alexander Kessel After the Interceptor Ends?
When JJ thwarts his plans, a Russian submarine emerges out of nowhere, and Alexander figures it’s his ride to safety. The Russians, on the other hand, shoot him and leave JJ alive. It is never explained why this is the case. Perhaps he failed his assignment, or perhaps he turned rogue? It’s possible that I’ve overlooked something.
