Martin Freeman begins filming The Responder

The full cast of Martin Freeman’s new police drama has been announced as filming begins today.

Freeman will star alongside Adelayo Adedayo, Ian Hart, MyAnna Buring, Kerrie Hayes and Warren Brown.

David Bradley and Rita Tushingham will also take on roles alongside newcomers Josh Finan and Emily Fairn.

The Responder follows Chris (Martin Freeman), a crisis-stricken, morally compromised, unconventional urgent response officer tackling a series of night shifts on the beat in Liverpool.

Whilst trying to keep his head above water both personally and professionally, Chris is forced to take on a new rookie partner Rachel (Adelayo Adedayo). Both soon discover that survival in this high pressure, relentless, night-time world will depend on them either helping or destroying each other.

The series will air on BBC One and consist of five hour-long episodes.
