Totally unrealistic
16 August 2005 | by Sulla-2See all my reviews

Some idiot on BBC teletext today said that this show was realistic. It was anything but. It is set in Runcorn on the River Mersey. This is the only large Police station in the UK without a C.I.D.!! Most of the Police Officers are female and the two main male characters are totally out of control. The Male inspector is suddenly promoted to Superintendent without even an interview, leaving all the Chief Inspectors in the Force, gnashing their teeth. There is, of course, an obligatory senior female officer. All Police drama are unrealistic to a degree but this load of rubbish really takes the biscuit. The programme has been rightly discontinued.
