    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.
