WPC 56

Posted by John Blixt on

The British drama series WPC 56 centers on the challenges faced by the first woman to join a fictional police force in the West Midlands. As the only Woman Police Constable (WPC) on the Brinford beat, Gina Dawson (Jennie Jacques) struggles to overcome sexist attitudes and gain acceptance in a male-dominated police force. The Brinford force typically deals with teenage runaways, "Teddy Boys," and petty criminals in their small city. However, the lines of the law start to blur when the hunt for a killer draws the team into a criminal underworld of shady boxing clubs, brothels and nightclubs — all run by a ruthless gangster who is as dangerous as he is untouchable. As this situation unfolds, the unwanted attention of a senior officer pushes Gina to cross a line which could mean the end of her career.
