Storyline

Harrington is a by-the-rules cop, being groomed for command in the police force. Jake Brown is a street-wise cop, brilliant at undercover work in the drug trade. When chance throws Harrington an opportunity to break one of Manchester's biggest drug rings by going undercover himself, it's up to Jake to make sure that Harrington doesn't blow the case or their covers. But Harrington begins to discover more than he wanted to know about himself, and he may be in danger of going too far. Written by Kathy Li

watching you see why Le Platne's reputation faded.
28 April 2020 | by ib011f9545iSee all my reviews

Widows and She's Out were pretty good. But Le Platne is better at writing about low life crooks than cops and this is a cop series. I have several dvds of this (50p each). I did not like this much but Juliet Aubrey is in it and she is the highlight. These are low budget productions full of cliches.
