Speaking about the new investigation of this series, the show's creator Chris Lang said: "The investigation will show the best of the police and the worst, and at a time of unprecedented cutbacks, it will ask a number of difficult questions about the police force as an institution.

The episode will air on Tuesday instead

"It will ask what do we expect them to be? It will ask if that is compatible with what they are capable of being? It will ask how much we now take for granted the fact that on a daily basis, these men and women walk towards danger. And, after decades of bruising revelations about their probity, it will ask if we can ever again truly trust them. It is at once a love letter and a ‘J’accuse’."
