Storyline

This is no TV show; this is reality fly-on-the-wall television. Following the elite Pro-Active team of England's Thames Valley police, we are back seat passengers in the workings, trappings and experiences of these highly trained crime-busters'. Driving unmarked cars and taking no prisoners, this is an inside view of modern UK policing and the English society of criminal intent of dangerous driving, drugs and common lawlessness and crimes that makes for gripping television in an unrehearsed documentary style of law & disorder.

Unique Police Camera Action style documentary
12 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** The Works **** That Little Bit In Between *** Just Misses the Mark ** Lagging Behind * The Pits

A look at outrageous, camcorder recorded moments for traffic cops around the world, narrated by former Coronation Street star Lee Boardman.

There's nothing particularly new or original about the concept behind Road Wars, but it's very different from many other shows of it's kind. Rather than focus solely on crazy encounters of the UK police force (of which there are many!) it travels around the world, from the United States, Australia and Africa. It's a mix of the serious and the more light-hearted stuff but they're all, in their own little way, completely shocking and unbelievable. It's all narrated along by former Corrie star Boardman in his sardonic, condescending manner. The fact that he hasn't had much on-screen acting work since leaving Corrie four years previously is pretty typical of most of it's stars, but he's found a niche here giving the show an air of authenticity that is all his own.

An interesting and thoroughly engaging show that is one of the best Sky One has produced in a long while. ****
