The Cops

Show Summary

Welcome to the guide to The Cops at TV.com. Set in and around Stanton, a faceless and grim Northern enclave, The Cops depicts the daily grind for a group of policemen and women out on the beat as they interact, and sometimes clash, with the local community. From its lace-curtained semis to the altogether harsher environs of the brutal and drug-infested Skeetsmoor Estate, the town of Stanton sees a lot of crime, and not all of it is committed by the general public... Like The Bill before it, the series used revolutionary hand-held camera techniques to attain a sense of authenticity, and police officers were featured in every scene. A brave departure from the style of earlier BBC police drama series, the show abandoned the cosy camaraderie in exchange for an unremittingly grim view of both officers and the community they serve, and this helped it to win widespread critical acclaim (including two BAFTA awards).
