Good Cop

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR TV WEEK - Nigel An­drew

This su­pe­rior, four-part po­lice drama gets off to a grip­ping start. War­ren Brown (above) plays beat cop PC John Rock­sav­age (known as Sav), for whom an or­di­nary day turns sud­denly and dra­mat­i­cally into one in which the whole course of his life will change. It be­gins with a chance en­counter on the beach with his ex-girl­friend (who has clearly moved on) and their daugh­ter. Then, eat­ing in a diner with his col­league Andy, Sav in­ter­venes to stop a gang of men, led by the deeply un­pleas­ant Finch (Stephen Gra­ham), mo­lest­ing a wait­ress. The con­se­quences of this ac­tion will be ter­ri­ble in­deed… Mean­while, there’s enough go­ing on in the back­ground of the story – in­clud­ing the ar­rival of new WPC Amanda Mor­gan (Ker­rie Hayes, above) – to en­sure that the plot will thicken nicely. Thurs­day, 9pm, BBC1.
