Good Cop

9:00pm Thursday 20 September on BBC ONE

Sav’s quest to get Jonjo arrested for Andy’s murder draws suspicion from Costello and Sarge; his emotions seem to be impairing his ability to do his job. At work with Amanda, Sav’s lines of wrong, right and justice seem to be blurring.

On patrol, Sav sees local known thief Kyle Smart and asks him to keep an eye out for two men on dirt bikes who have been attacking young women.

Amanda is asked to pose as a student in an attempt to catch the two men, but Sav is angry about the lack of back-up she will have and the danger she’s putting herself in.

When the set-up goes wrong, Sav is furious at the force’s inability to help. When he gets a call from Kyle to say he’s seen the two men on dirt bikes, Sav decides it’s time to sort things out – his way.

After a team briefing from Costello, Sav recognises one of Andy’s attackers, Jonjo Heinz, as he is being escorted into the station. Sav looks in his cell and is met by DC Liam Frainey who tells Sav that Jonjo handed himself in, spooked by recent events.

Later at the station, Sav sees that Jonjo has been set free. He confronts Frainey but Costello intervenes angrily. They can’t arrest Jonjo on Sav’s statement alone. They need hard evidence.

Back at home, Sav takes solace talking to his father and remembering his mum. He decides to take photographs of his daughter so that his dad will know he has a grandchild, but Cassie demands he hands them over and Sav knows he’s gone too far.

Ep 3/4

9:00pm Thursday 6 September on BBC ONE

Sav is under serious threat from Callum Rose, Finch’s mate. He claims he was waiting for Finch in a car outside the house on the night that Sav returned. Sav thinks back to that night: did Callum see him leaving the house?

Callum is wildly unpredictable and he seems to know a lot about Sav. He also has a habit of turning up unexpectedly, and this leaves Sav with no option but to take action.

Meanwhile Sav and his new partner Amanda attempt to identify a homeless woman whom they were unable to prevent from jumping off a building. Sav finally manages to arrange a meeting with his estranged ex Cassie, but it doesn’t turn out as he’d hoped.

Ep 2/4

9:00pm Thursday 30 August on BBC ONE

Warren Brown (Luther, Occupation) stars in the lead role of Stephen Butchard’s (Five Daughters, House of Saddam), Good Cop, a new four-part drama series made by BBC Drama Production North.

It starts as an ordinary day, but while out running on Crosby beach, beat cop PC John Paul Rocksavage (Sav) bumps into his ex-girlfriend Cassandra and their daughter Libby. Sav catches a glimpse of the family he could have had, but Cassie isn’t interested in a reunion.

Later that day Sav is having lunch with his best friend and colleague Andy Stockwell when he witnesses a gang of men mistreating a waitress. Sav intervenes and finds himself face to face with a very unpleasant Finch, who threatens to attack the next copper he sees.

Their shift starts and Sav and Andy attend what seems like another regular call out: neighbours have complained about the noise at a house party. But when they arrive at the house, Finch and the gang from the diner are waiting. As Sav tries to get in from the back, Andy manages to get in through the front where the gang launch a brutal assault on him. They escape, leaving Sav tending to a badly beaten Andy.

That night, haunted by images of Finch, Sav returns to the scene of Andy’s beating hoping to make sense of it all and finds a loaded gun concealed under a loose floorboard. At that moment Finch returns, but Sav stands his ground and makes a split second decision that changes the course of his life and career.
