The Responder

In this five-part Liverpool-set drama about a policeman who responds to emergency calls, British actor Martin Freeman will make you forget he became famous in comedies. Oscillating between rage, despair and bewilderment, as the emergencies - both personal and professional keep on coming - this is an incredible character drama coursing with blistering social issues.





Over the course of six night shifts, we follow Liverpudlian police officer Chris Carson (Martin Freeman) as he contends with illegal parties, drug dealers, neighbourly disputes, as well as his own deteriorating mental health.
