Follows a group of police officers on the front line wondering what they did to end up where they are on the ugly side of Manchester. Keeping these streets clean is a Herculean task, enough to demoralize even the keenest rookie. But there's a reason these cops are in this force. As the never ending rabble off the local estates pours in, Inspector Vivienne Deering, the station's sharp, funny and hard-as-they-come boss, and her team led by DC Dinah Kowalski and DC Joy Freers, show they have what it takes to crack crime and to expose the addled, the swanky, the pimps, the petty and the really proper nasty bastards for the sewer rats they are.

Love it
16 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

We love this series and we both have a uniform background.

I have laughed out loud and grimaced at some scenes that I saw in real life.

It is one of the best police series I have seen. The angst of getting it wrong,the relationships forged in extreme circumstances, the black humour and how the job takes over your life. Elaine Cassidy is superbly cast. Yes there are 'playground moments' others have reviewed, but that is sometimes the only way you can deal with the worst aspects of human nature and stay sane.

Love it and hope it has another series.
