Tim Pigott-Smith (The Vice) stars as John Stafford, a newly promoted Chief Constable, in this police procedural drama series with a difference. The Chief shows a police force undergoing a culture change, as the outspoken and deeply committed Stafford attempts to reform crime-prevention policies and challenge the frequently unacceptable behaviour of his front-line officers.

The promotion proves deeply unpopular, and, when Anne encounters rampant workplace misogyny, exposes some of the more unpleasant institutional attitudes among the ranks. While Anne faces a wall of prejudice as well as the personal difficulties arising from her son’s drug addiction, Stafford’s strategies for tackling the ever-mounting challenges of modern policing - be they the consequences of an increasingly violent drugs subculture, militant student actions or vigilante gangs - frequently bring him into conflict with his superiors.
