Speaking of the show, Martin told the BBC: “When Laurence Bowen first sent me the scripts, he was very excited and after reading the first few pages, and I felt like this was really something else. .
“It’s not a movie written by committee, it’s Tony Schumacher unfiltered, and I really like that he puts whatever he wants on the page.
What happened in episodes 1 and 2?
The series follows Chris Carson, played by Freeman, on a series of night shifts in central Liverpool.
In the first two episodes, we see Carson as a fringe man, and scenes on duty are interspersed with scenes of him in therapy, at home, and with his mother in a nursing home.
He teams up with Rachel Hargreaves, an inexperienced and still idealistic new officer who wants to play by the rules.
We also met Carl Sweeney, a middle-class drug dealer whose cocaine inventory was stolen by drug addict Casey.
Carson was trying to help Casey and in doing so overtook Sweeney, prompting Sweeney to attempt to threaten him.
