Wokenwell (ITV 1997, Celia Imrie, Jason Done)

Crime drama series Wokenwell went for a defiantly slightly off kilter feel with it’s stories of three policemen in the Yorkshire town of the title. Sgt Duncan Bonney, PC Brian Rainford and PC Rudy Whiteside investigate some bizarre cases that begin when a severed finger is found outside a local butcher’s shop. Also a major part of the storylines is the coppers home lives, Rudy is married to Lucky, Brian to Fran and Duncan to June.

Although it only lasted one short season Wokenwell had plenty going for it, not least some excellent scripts from Gallagher and a great cast especially strong was the playing of the three wives.
