No Offence: Watch trailer for Shameless creator's new Channel 4 drama

7 April 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The first trailer for Shameless creator Paul Abbott's Channel 4 drama No Offence has been released.

The Manchester-based crime drama stars Joanna Scanlan, Alexandra Roach and Colin Salmon, and mixes "cop drama, family saga and social mayhem".

No Offence consists of eight hour-long episodes, and follows Di Vivienne Deering (Scanlan), DC Dinah Kowalska (Elaine Cassidy) and DS Joy Freers (Roach) as they attempt to keep the streets clean from crime.

Broadchurch's Will Mellor and Friday Night Dinner's Paul Ritter also star.

Writer Abbott previously said about the show: "I'm a big fan of well-told cop shows and jet-black social comedy, and I wanted to see how explosively we could bang two genres' heads together.

"No Offence is reared on wilder-than-average seeds, and I've had a ball with the AbbottVision team in building this concept."

Abbott is known for his work on Cracker, State of Play and Clocking Off. »

The Musketeers series 2 episode 3 review: The Good Traitor

15 January 2015 5:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Musketeers' winning streak continues this week, but is the supporting cast starting to eclipse the Musketeers themselves?

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 The Good Traitor

Last week’s An Ordinary Man brought excitement and danger through some strong writing and performances, and could certainly be considered up there with the best the series has had to offer. It was a good example of how a Musketeers’ story can be told that reflects the excitement and adventure of the source material but in a manner that modern audiences would enjoy – exactly what we’ve been wanting from this adaptation.
