Liverpool 1 will be released on DVD by Simply Media on the 15th of August 2016. Review here.
Liverpool: the home of heroes and legends. Football, The Beatles, Ferry Across the Mersey – people know this city. At least, they think they do… Merseyside CID know another Liverpool. Day to day, on the streets, they’re at the sharp end of the fight against the drug pushers, porn barons, paedophiles and pimps who run this great port’s crime networks.
Liverpool 1 is a gritty drama that originally aired on ITV in the late 1990s, from BAFTA award-winning directors Ken Horn and Terry McDonough. Starring a wealth of great British acting talent including Samantha Womack (Eastenders, Game On), Scot Williams (Mersey Beat, Meadowlands) and Mark Womack (Murphy’s Law, Babylon) and featuring the inimitable Carry On favourite Leslie Phillips CBE, it comes to DVD for the first time in the UK thanks to Simply Media.
DC Isobel de Pauli has taken on a new job, in a new city where she soon discovers she is a stranger to the ancient, hidden connections that tie Liverpool’s criminals together… and its cops. On arrival she comes face to face with John Sullivan, the city’s most charismatic and influential crime boss. He’s as fascinated by her as she is by him—but Sullivan is the least of her worries.
Her new partner, the silent and indistinctive DC Mark Callaghan, knows this world inside out – and he’s doing everything in his power to shut de Pauli out of it. Callaghan is the subject of an internal police investigation, and de Pauli has some serious suspicions about his links to Liverpool’s criminal underworld.
This uncompromising drama pits cops versus criminals, but who is on whose side? Liverpool 1: Complete Series 1 and 2 comes to DVD as a bumper 4-disc set on 15 August 2016.
