No Offence is a Channel 4 cop show about a team of police in Manchester investigating a serial murderer targeting young women with Down's Syndrome. It centres around two female officers, D.I. Viv Deering and D.C. Dinah Kowalski. It is currently screening in Australia on the ABC and iView.
Have you been watching the show, and if so, what do you think of it so far?
Oops, this question was supposed to go on TVOde. Oh well. I've seen the first two episodes and really like it. I'm a fan of British cop shows, and it makes a nice change to see one centred around female characters like this.
Yes I am - being a Brit I love their cop shows - can't go past their excellence really. The acting is great, as is the humour, but I particularly love the fact it has a pretty dark side to it as well. All the characters are amazing actors, especially Joanna Scanlan (Viv) who is a pretty well known actress in comedy and drama back home. She has been in numerous shows. In the hilarious "Thick of It" she was a press officer who was pretty inept, and in the comedy "Getting On" she was a nursing sister. Off the top of my head these are the two that would be most familiar to Australian viewers.
