From Shameless creator Paul Abbott, No Offence is set in a crumbling cop shop on the wrong side of Manchester and tells the story of a group of police officers on the front line who go above and beyond to being the criminal element to justice. These officers test the biggest challenge yet when they discover that there is a serial killer on the loose. The drama series is produced by AbbottVision and stars Joanna Scanlan, Elaine Cassidy, Alexandra Roach, Will Mellor, Paul Ritter, Ste Johnston, Tom Varey, Saira Choudhry, Kate O’Flynn, Conor MacNeill and Claire Rushbrook.
In the show’s third season, mayoral hustings in Cinderly, an inner-city area of Manchester, is a tinderbox ready to ignite. Fuelling the chaos in the community is leader of the extreme Far Right group Albion, Dennis Caddy, his outspoken girlfriend Bonnie and his mouthy sister Faye. The febrile atmosphere in Cinderly ignites as the mayoral candidate anti-establishment, local girl-done-good politician Caroline McCoy goes head to head for the high-stakes electoral ward, with woolly liberal Mayor Karim Hassan. In their midst is the master puppeteer, mercenary Far Right fanatic Ralph Beckett, forcing Viv and the team to fight toe to toe as he wages his war on both the cops and culturally-vulnerable targets – with devastating consequences. Viv and Friday Street find themselves pawns in a political chess match, which is the last thing they need as incidents of hate crime soar in the city. Clashing once more with the underworld and the upper brass alike, Viv’s never had it so tough and finds she must deploy every weapon in her arsenal to keep her team together and restore peace to a community wracked with political and xenophobic uncertainty.
