Cuffs, the BBC says, is a fresh, authentic and visceral drama that will take the audience on an exhilarating ride through the challenges of front-line policing. From a booby-trapped cannabis farm in a suburban semi to an elderly farmer’s wife with a shotgun, the stories aren’t quite the norm. The cast includes Ashley Walters (who is generally excellent), Peter Sullivan, Amanda Abbington, Shaun Dooley, Paul Ready and Eleanor Matsuura. It has been written by Julie Gearey, who worked on Prisoners’ Wives and Diary Of A Call Girl. Here’s the first image.
