Police Series set in the North of England
30 July 2005 | by Sulla-2See all my reviews

This was a Police Series set in a city in the North of England. It is never named but it is obviously Manchester. The Police work from Christmas Street Police station which is obviously in the City Centre. There is a mixture of Uniform and CID officers as well as a mix of crime and humour. I found it quite interesting and it is currently being repeated on the UK Drama Channel. This show was possibly meant to be a vehicle for Paul Nicholls of EastEnders fame who stars as a naive and inexperienced young Constable. He receives advice and guidance from the excellent Dave Hill who plays an old experienced Constable who has seen and done everything. Christine Tremarco plays a young tearaway who gets herself arrested twice every programme before she is tragically killed.Other stars are Lorraine Ashbourne as the Uniform Sergeant and Ray Stevenson of Band of Gold fame, a Detective Inspector who never wears a shirt and tie.City Central was on a par with 'The Bill' which is now more of a soap
