Stunning realist police drama
23 September 1999 | by MartPolSee all my reviews

The Cops is one of the most forceful drama series produced in the UK in recent years. In essence a documentary-style police drama, its real triumph lies in its deep characterisation (no good cops, no bad cops - just people) and its stunning method acting. John Henshaw's Roy is a particularly devastating example of the power of this series. This is TV that pulls no punches - gripping storylines and amazing camerawork are just a part of it.
