About the Series

Cuffs was a drama series depicting the lives of front-line police officers within Brighton and the surrounding area of Sussex serving within the fictional South Sussex Police service. The series aired on BBC One, with episode one first transmitted on 28 October 2015.

The series focuses on the personal lives of the characters, against a backdrop of typical incidents faced by modern front-line police officers and more comedic ones such as hooligans harassing naturists on a nudist beach and reports of ‘dog-napping’ in a middle-class neighbourhood. The eight-part series was the first police-based drama to be broadcast by the channel since the Holby City spin off, HolbyBlue was aired in 2007, and it shared the same eight o’clock slot.

On 17 December 2015, the day after the final episode, the BBC confirmed that the show had been cancelled after one series in order to “create space for new shows”
