Further details

This week, a dodgy driver catches the eye of PCs Hugh McKirdy and Surjit Singh while extreme piggy-backing is on offer from PC Jack McLaren, much to the delight of his police partner, Sarah Fletcher.

The Chief is no stranger to tricky confrontations but being on a criminal rehabilitation panel with his ex-wife, Barbara Edwards, proves unsettling and bizarrely flirtatious.

DCs Megan Squire and Andrea McGill find a sombre setting for smuggling while Bobby's confused about his democratic right to vote and, as usual, turns to Officer Karen for guidance.

Special Operations presents a whole new set of policing problems, as Sgt Ray McCoy reveals. When a very important dignitary requires a level of protection far beyond the call of duty, Ray steps in to protect his modesty and uphold the law.
