The Force Series Premiere

Tuesday, October 13 on 4

With unprecedented and unvarnished access to Hampshire Constabulary, this new series lays bare the challenges faced by frontline officers. In this first episode a woman’s body, burned beyond all recognition, is discovered lying in a cornfield on an idyllic summer’s day. Two days into the case, police know their victim has been strangled, her body carried in a suitcase to a field near a tiny Hampshire village, and then set alight; but not who she or her killer is. The chase is on, and as the case unfolds it presents an extraordinary snapshot of Britain in the 21st century.
