After four years away, the countdown clock ticks again for Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer tackles a dangerous new mission in London in 24: Live Another Day. At the start of the series – which comprises 12 episodes but still spans 24 hours – the former Counter Terrorist Unit agent emerges from hiding to defuse a death threat against US President James Heller (William Devane) who is visiting the UK to broker a treaty. The ensuing plot entangles Jack with a number of familiar faces – including Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe O’Brian, who has turned into an Edward Snowden-like radical and old flame Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), the president’s daughter – and new ones such as Stephen Fry’s British Prime Minister and Benjamin Bratt’s CIA station chief. Don’t worry about the liberties the show takes with London’s geography, just sit back and enjoy: 24 is as absurdly addictive as ever.
