Cuffs – All episodes

This fresh contemporary 8-part cop show takes the audience on an exhilarating ride through the challenges of frontline policing in the vibrant and alternative seaside city of Brighton.

But the high stakes are also matched with more absurd altercations such as a middle-class dog-napping and naturists fighting on the beach. Starring Ashley Walters (Top Boy), Peter Sullivan (The Borgias), Amanda Abbington (Sherlock), Jacob Ifan (Bang, A Discovery of Witches) and Shaun Dooley (Exile). (8 EPS, 2015)
