Filming on the old-timers cop show, which stars Amanda Redman alongside James Bolam, Dennis Waterman and Alun Armstrong, is expected to commence on a new run of eight episodes later this year in and around London. The fifth series wrapped its transmission run on Monday night, averaging 8.4m viewers and a respectable 35.8% share of the audience.

"Amanda, Dennis, Alun and James have brought real depth, warmth and humour to their characters, but I know there is still much more we can do with the series," said Tom Sherry, executive producer at production company Wall to Wall. "It is the show's ability to be both humorously entertaining and from time to time tackle darker issues which keeps all the team keen to come back and make next year even better."
