Keeping these streets clean is a Herculean task, enough to demoralize even the keenest rookie but there's a reason why this hotchpotch of committed cops are on this force, on this side of town. Drug labs, arsonists, neo-Nazis and notorious murderers are all in a day's work for this close-knit team, led by the dizzyingly capable but unquestionably unhinged DI Vivienne Deering (Scanlan). But when a particularly twisted serial killer emerges it leaves even the most hardened of these seasoned coppers reeling. Flanked by her right-hand women the compassionate but impulsive DC Dinah Kowalska (Cassidy) and the recently (surprisingly) promoted DS Joy Freers (Roach) Deering and her team must crack this case by whatever unconventional means possible. Because amidst all the assorted low life; the pimps, the petty thieves, and downright nasty bastards they've dealt with, this is their most disturbing case yet, one that will touch their lives in ways they could never expect. The cast includes: Ste Johnston, Tom Varey (The Village), Neet Mohan (Fresh Meat), Saira Choudhry (Hollyoaks), Hannah Walters (This Is England), Charlie May-Clark (South Riding) and Kate O'Flynn (Mr.Turner).
