The gang's night-time rooftop raid descends into catastrophe when the lads are forced to use unconventional methods to avoid detection by their school-days adversary Carl Slater, a local policeman.

Press

Joe Gilgun's Shameless successor is still joyriding through rural Lancashire at a breakneck pace. This week's wild ride involves a raid on a rival weed grower's farm and an encounter with Erin's on-the-run brother Ronnie. Plus Dominic West is back as Vinnie's hilariously self-involved GP, Dr Cox.

Ellen E. Jones, The Guardian, 12th September 2019
