A force to be reckoned with: the Christmas Street officers are back on the beat in City Central
City Central 9.05pm BBC1
The police drama that made its debut last year hits the ground running with this opening to the second series. Not only does it deliver a clutch of storylines with pace and power, it has more laughs than your average sitcom.
The energetic ensemble returns as the high-spirited bobbies. But there are some changes to the Christmas Street set-up. DI Tony Baynham is no longer a dishevelled hunk: he has smartened up his act. The choice selection of incidents includes a series of attacks on priests, a brawl at a wedding reception and a robbery featuring the attempted use of a chicken as an offensive weapon. And what a dramatic climax.
