The Responder is the latest new drama to land on BBC One.
Written by ex-police officer Tony Schumacher, the new series is said to “hold a mirror up to the emotional extremes of life on the front line of British policing”.
The show has been described as a “distinctive new take on crime drama” and has a star-studded cast list, including Martin Freeman, Adelayo Adedayo, Ian Hart and MyAnna Buring.
A synopsis for the series reads: “The Responder follows Chris Carson (Martin Freeman), a crisis-stricken, morally compromised, unconventional urgent response officer tackling a series of night shifts on the beat in Liverpool.
“Whilst trying to keep his head above water both personally and professionally, Chris is forced to take on a new rookie partner Rachel (Adelayo Adedayo).
“Both soon discover that survival in this high pressure, relentless, night-time world will depend on them either helping or destroying each other.”
