Season 1

Scott & Bailey is a British police procedural television drama series created by Sally Wainwright and Diane Taylor and based on an original idea by Suranne Jones and Sally Lindsay which revolves around the personal and professional lives of DC Bailey and DC Scott, members of the Major Incident Team of the fictional Manchester Metropolitan Police.

Janet is subtle, reliable and a diplomatic thinker with a wry sense of humour, which makes her the perfect foil for Rachel. She has two daughters and is in a marriage that can often feel like nothing more than a convenient arrangement to both her and her husband.

Behind her straight facade is a woman who is capable of infidelity and has suffered an emotional breakdown over the murder of a childhood friend, an event which drove her to join the police force.

Rachel is energetic, impulsive, and bold. Her intuition makes her a great cop, although her boss unfairly views her as a liability. Often burning the candle at both ends, Rachel's spur of the moment ideas and vulnerability often lead to disaster in her private life and subsequent law breaking of her own.

Detective Chief Inspector Gill Murray leads a team of over thirty detectives, including Rachel, Janet and Detective Sergeant Andy Roper. A divorced single parent, Gill is a hugely capable woman, whose speedy thought processes require everyone around her to raise their game to keep up with her.

Charismatic, funny, clever, fair-minded, occasionally scary, a paradigm of professionalism, Gill is an inspiring detective and leader, always at the centre of the office scene.

Scott and Bailey are both competent, ambitious women, passionate about getting the job done effectively. Neither of them suffer fools. They draw on each other's strengths every day to deal with extreme and horrific crimes.
