The Responder on BBC Two is coming soon, and now we have a trailer.
Starring Matin Freeman, the five-part series centres around Chris, 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.
Martin Freeman says: “Tony Schumacher’s scripts were so unique and honest that I knew very quickly that I wanted to be a part of The Responder and take on the role of Chris. No-one writes like Tony and it has been exhilarating inhabiting the world he has created.”
Ian Hart, MyAnna Buring, Kerrie Hayes, Warren Brown, David Bradley and the legend that is Rita Tushingham also star.
No word on a transmission date yet, but it’s very, very soon.
