Blue Lights on Prime Video


Blue Lights on Prime Video – Follows rookie police officers working in Belfast, a city in which being a frontline response cop comes with unique pressures and dangers.

Written and co-created by Declan Lawn and Adam Patterson (who wrote The Salisbury Poisonings), Blue Lights sets itself apart from the pack.

The series has a journalistic eye for detail and nuance. It sidesteps the case-of-the-week template, preferring to take an overview of the incredibly complex world of policing in Belfast.

The first broadcast paints a detailed picture of the city as it is today, with the Troubles never far from that picture, whether in the highly sensitive issue of policing by consent (and consent is not a given), or in the histories of the men (and women) involved in organized crime.

Storyline for Blue Lights on Prime Video

It’s a drama not a documentary.

If you made a police drama that reflected the real pace of things you’d soon get bored watching 90% same old mundane or hurry up and wait.

Therefore some poetic license and speeding up is required and the trick , that this series manages magnificently , is not to let that detract too much from the attempts at realism. Keeping that in mind this has the lot.

Not all cops are heroes (though many are very much so ) , not all baddies are as they seem, some in authority or in responsible roles are far too far up their own whatever and some are simply stupid.

There’s fair amount of of politics but balanced by lots of willingness backed up by humor be it dark or comic.

It’s a gritty drama well written directed and acted that ranges from making you laugh through to holding back the tears.

Most of the characters or type of characters are identifiable and are out there, maybe not all together at the same time but they’re there.
