The Responder With Martin Freedman Storyline
Police response officer Chris is struggling to keep a grip on his mental health.
The Responder is a British police drama series set in Liverpool, written by former Merseyside Police officer Tony Schumacher, with Tim Mielants as leading director and starring Martin Freeman, Adelayo Adedayo, Ian Hart, and MyAnna Buring.
Schumacher has said that the character has “a lot to do” with him and the struggles he faced as a police officer, but that the storyline is fictional.
Chris Carson is a police officer in a fictional constabulary covering Liverpool, who has been demoted from his position as an inspector and undertakes a series of night shifts in the city centre.
Shots of him working are interspersed with scenes at therapy, at home, and with his mother in a nursing lodge.
His partner is Rachel Hargreaves, an inexperienced and still idealistic officer who wants to play by the rules.
Carl Sweeney is a mid-level drug dealer whose stash of cocaine has been stolen by Casey, a local drug addict.
Before he filmed the series, Martin Freeman spent 18 months talking to himself in a Scouse accent so he could perfect it.
