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.

User Reviews

It's entertainment!

I have noticed a couple of bad reviews for this show but, all I have to say in response to these is, take a look for yourself. No, it may not be to everyone's taste but, tell me something that is? Personally, I love it! I've now watched the first 3 episodes aired on C4 and the kind of 'gallows humour' contained therein really is appealing to anyone who works in an industry that is, oftentimes, so dire and dreadful that humour is the only coping mechanism left open to you. But, that said, as my title implies, this show has been created for ENTERTAINMENT purposes only! If you aren't entertained, then watch something else, it's that simple. However, that said, I would like to point out that not everyone was initially impressed with Paul Abbot's other creation, Shameless, and now look what's happened there! A great deal of the population are being entertained by that one, from OAP's to indolent teens, it's a winner across the board without doubt. If these two shows are examples of what Mr Abbot is capable of then I say "create away Paul, you damn genius!" I would like to point out here that yes, I am a child from a school playground put into an adult's body, as are we all, and anyone so full of their own self importance to say they are not, needs to take the stick from out their a**e! Tee hee! Puerile enough for you? ;-)
