Paul Abbott’s No Offence is one of the more engaging British crime dramas out there, and we’ve known for a while that series three was imminent.
Now we know when it’s going to start.
DI Viv Deering (Joanna Scanlan) and the Friday Street team face off against their most formidable antagonist yet: the far-right. The series opens amidst a contentious mayoral election fought between incumbent liberal Kashif Hassan (Ace Bhatti) and political underdog and local-girl-done-good Caroline McCoy (Lisa McGrillis). DI Viv Deering and the Friday Street team are drawn into their rivalry when a mayoral hustings between the pair becomes a flashpoint for deadly violence as assassin Beckett (Darren Connolly) enters the political fray. In the aftermath of the fatal shooting, Friday Street must infiltrate the murky world of the far-right and their wealthy and powerful benefactors, to catch the killer. The Friday Street team search for the killer amid the usual chaos, with outrageous stories that confound our heroes including teen drug scandals, warring bridesmaids and halal meat poisoning.
