Suranne Jones and Lesley Sharp made a good team, a kind of Mancunian Cagney and Lacey, in Sally Wainwright’s hard-edged detective drama.
Scott & Bailey (Encore starts repeats from the start of 2011’s series one) always felt particularly authentic, and the procedural aspects were bang-on.
There were plenty of peeks into the two women’s personal lives, of course. Rachel Bailey (Jones) rarely had any luck with men and we first see her as her suave, love-rat barrister boyfriend Nick (Rupert Graves) dumps her.
In the opening case Scott and Bailey investigate when a young woman is found dead at her home after she apparently killed herself.
Crime drama following the personal and professional lives of two detectives working for a Manchester police unit that specialises in murder cases. DC Janet Scott (Lesley Sharp) and DC Rachel Bailey (Suranne Jones) investigate the case of a pregnant woman who was killed in her bedroom. Meanwhile, Rachel's love life takes a turn for the worse and Janet gets a call that reawakens a past tragedy. Also starring Rupert Graves, Amelia Bullmore and Nicholas Gleaves.
