Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this British police procedural series deals with violence and crime as part of its storytelling, though very little is depicted on camera. Occasional conversations occur around sexuality and frequent drinking and smoking appear on screen. Despite it's fairly mild content, the show's plotting and themes are aimed at mature teens and adults.

Sexual Content

Sex and romance, including affairs, are occasional topics of mild conversation, but never depicted on screen.


The series is driven by acts of violence, such as the murder of the wife of the lead character by mob killers. However, there's very little violence seen on screen.


Characters occasionally use mild derogatory terms to describe each other, but without the use of strong words.

Social Behavior

The show's focus is on police work and the relentless pursuit of justice. Boundaries between right and wrong are well-defined.
