DETECTIVE INSPECTOR VIVIENNE DEERING Joanna Scanlan
9:00pm, Tuesday, 5 May 2015,
Channel 4

On the one hand, this new series from Shameless writer Paul Abbott seems familiar. It's set in a Manchester police station and features a team who aren't afraid to kick the rule book to the kerb to get results. But on the other hand it's a dark comedy with some fairly bonkers characters, especially DI Deering (Joanna Scanlan). The mix of serious crime drama with the odd bit of farcical comedy may not be everyone's cup of tea but if you fancy something a bit different that's brilliantly written and has a fabulous cast, then this could be right up your street.
