One to Watch (?)

Bike Squad, a 90 minute ‘pilot’ – which could become a series, is on STV at 9.00 tonight.

“Comedy drama starring Mark Addy and Maxine Peake. A group of police misfits, led by an unfit misanthrope with a deep loathing of bicycles, are dumped in a scheme to put ‘Bobbies back on bikes’.

At first they are considered to be a joke by their colleagues and in the community, but when pride kicks in and they pull together to get the job done, the scheme works so well, that the rag-tag team discover they may be destined to be stuck on their bikes forever.”

It’s by Drop the Dead Donkey writer Guy Jenkin, so should be amusing. At least the bikes are authentic.
