"Life Isn't Always Uniform!"
7 August 2002 | by skippyroo2000See all my reviews

Believable characters face the challenge of work alongside their everyday lives and the process of finding a balance between being a police officer on the beat and coping with a life outside of uniform runs as the main theme throughout this drama. Brilliant scripted storylines and great filming with a superb cast, including the wonderful Haydn Gwynne (as Superintendent Susan Blake), make Merseybeat one of the best cop dramas on the TV.
