Scott & Bailey
The show, written by Sally Wainwright , revolves around the personal and professional lives of Detectives Janet Scott played by Sharp and Rachel Bailey played by Jones. A creative choice was made to end the series after an abbreviated fifth series in , despite continued good reception and strong viewership. The series is produced by Manchester -based Red Production Company and is largely filmed in the Greater Manchester area. Upon taking the idea to Nicola Shindler of Red Productions , Shindler contacted Sally Wainwright , who wrote a script for an episode and, according to Jones, they "loved it". Subsequently, Wainwright paired up with Diane Taylor,  a former Detective Inspector from Greater Manchester Police , to create the programme, and the production expanded from Jones and Lindsay's original concept. You'd last about two weeks". I could pull a thousand cases out of my head people would say would never happen.

Cagney Sharon Gless was single and more glamorous than her partner, Lacey Tyne Daly , the wife of a contractor. Bailey is an unmarried woman in her 30s who binge-drinks and has impulse-control issues; her partner is a levelheaded something mother of two.

For the uninitiated, Lesley Sharp and Suranne Jones play resilient Oldham law-enforcers Janet Scott and Rachel Bailey, kicking off their third series tonight with a grizzly investigation into the unexplained death of a pensioner. They are determined, professional and, as usual, encumbered with screwy personal lives. Think Cagney and Lacey but with more bronzer, bigger balls and a heavy reliance on tongs. Because they are female detectives in an ITV drama, Scott and Bailey never turn up to a murder scene without a full face of Revlon and a decent blowdry. Whatever the bloody scene behind the fluttering police tape, however liberally the ground may be strewn with guts and severed limbs, they stand above it all, tresses billowing, camera concentrating on their reactions to it rather than zooming in for a close-up of a gouged organ.
By Jessamy Calkin. You know who you are — pay up! The board in the briefing room strikes a more sombre note — a photo of a murder suspect and a map of the crime scene — and a hand-scrawled message on a whiteboard is worthy of the artist David Shrigley: Anyone who may require new stab vests see Mr Maloney by Friday. The attention to detail is more extreme on this series, say many of the crew, than others they have worked on. This is largely down to the involvement of Di Taylor, a retired CID detective inspector and co-creator of the series. A second series of eight episodes was hurriedly commissioned last August when ITV realised it had a hit; scenes from the final two episodes of the new series were still being shot the week before the first episode went out two weeks ago.
