Bancroft (ITV 2017, Sarah Parish, Linus Roache)

Published

on

Scheduled across four consecutive nights Bancroft is a dark and compelling thriller, and at its heart is a female detective with an explosive secret. As the series opens the formidable Det. Superintendent Elizabeth Bancroft is leading the charge against the violent Kamara gang. Meanwhile, DS Katherine Stevens is given a cold murder case. In 1990, Laura Fraser was stabbed 18 times in frenzied attack at home. As Elizabeth and Katherine’s paths cross for the first time, Katherine finds that there’s more to the Fraser case than it seems – and Elizabeth has some secrets in her past which may prove difficult to hide.

Sarah Parish plays respected police officer Detective Superintendent Elizabeth Bancroft. Ruthless and courageous, Bancroft is a brilliant copper. She has given her life to the police force. But when ambitious fast-tracked recruit, Katherine Stevens joins the force, played by Faye Marsay, Katherine takes on a cold case and unwittingly disturbs the ghosts of Bancroft’s devastating past.

International actor, Linus Roache makes his return to British television with the series. Linus plays Tim Fraser who is haunted by an unsolved crime. He has also been running from his past but his hidden shame can’t stay buried forever.

Bancroft explores what happens when heinous crimes, long buried, come back to haunt us.

Filmed on location in and around Bolton and the North West.

Bancroft is the first commission from the ITVS drama label, , founded by drama producers Francis Hopkinson and Catherine Oldfield. Francis is an executive producer alongside series creator and writer Kate Brooke.

The series will be distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

Copper’s End (ITV 1971, Bill Owen, Josephine Tewson)

Sitcom Coppers End was very much from the Will Hay  (and Ask A Policeman in particular) school of comedy; When the series began the boys at the station led by Sergeant Stan Short, had the art of doing nothing down to a tee, so much so that they were even able to hire out their squad car for all manner of weddings, driving lessons and even stock car racing. All until the arrival of the super efficient W.P.S. Penny Pringle that is.
