ELAINE Cassidy talks to Rob Carnevale about playing DC Dinah Kowalska in the second series of Channel 4’s hit female-led crime comedy-drama No Offence and what appealed to her about taking on the role in Paul Abbott’s show in the first place.
Listen out for Elaine today
Colin Salmon (Arrow, 24: Live Another Day), Will Mellor (Dates, Broadchurch) and Paul Ritter (Friday Night Dinner, Vera) join them in the mix of tough but big-hearted bobbies who go above and beyond to bring down the criminal rabble in a crumbling cop-shop.
Keeping these streets clean is a Herculean task, enough to demoralize even the keenest rookie – but there’s a reason why this hotchpotch of committed cops are on this force, on this side of town. Drug labs, arsonists, neo-Nazis and notorious murderers are all in a day’s work for this close-knit team, led by the dizzyingly capable but unquestionably unhinged DI Vivienne Deering (Scanlan). But when a particularly twisted serial killer emerges it leaves even the most hardened of these seasoned coppers reeling.
They embark on a lovely, dysfunctional, unhealthy relationship. It’s cat-and-mouse, really tempestuous.
