WPC 56 (BBC-1 Crime Drama, Jennie Jacques, Claudia Jessie)

Published

on


Daytime drama WPC 56 was set in the 1950’s, ala Call The Midwife and in the first two seasons starring Jennie Jacques as WPC Gina Dawson who is trying to make a career in the police force at a time when it was completely male dominated. The third and final season saw the departure of Gina and the arrival of new WPC Annie Taylor (Claudia Jessie).

The series began with a murder investigation and an assault on a young woman but the second and third seasons went for more involved storylines involving corruption at a high level.

Cast: Jennie Jacques (WPC Gina Dawson – Seasons 1-2), Claudia Jessie (WPC Annie Taylor – Season 3), Charles De’Ath (Sgt Sidney Fenton), Oliver Rix (DI Harry Sawyer), James Barriscale (Desk Sergeant Swift), Mark Healy (Chief Inspector Walter Briggs), Liam Jeavons (PC Tommy Perkins), John Bowler (Asst Chief Constable Arthur Coulson), Rachel Leskovac (Susie Nightingale), Charlotte Lucas (Charlotte Briggs), Matt Kennard (David Meyer),

Executive Producer: Will Trotter / Producer: Mike Hobson
