A team of specialist independent crime-fighting technology experts faced a variety of threats based around computers and other modern technology.
The main trio of regulars were Nick Beckett (Jesse Birdsall), Ros Henderson (Jaye Griffiths) and Ed Russell (Craig McLachlan in series one to three, Steven Houghton in series four).
Initially an independent team, they began working with the government agency Bureau of Weapons Technology in series two under the authority of Jan (Jan Harvey).
Despite its sometimes paint-by-numbers plots – and the potentially fatal tag of “an Avengers for the 90s” – Bugs was a highly enjoyable, if rather lightweight, slice of adventure drama.
