BBC Radio 4 have commissioned a third series of the police comedy ‘It’s a Fair Cop’ – the show that sees veteran cop and comedian Alfie Moore swear in a live audience as police officers for the night before challenging them with the dilemmas of a real-life case scenario.
The last series, written and presented by Alfie, tackled challenging subjects such as harassment, excessive use of force and racism with his trademark blend of comedy, layman explanations about the law and very funny anecdotes from his own policing experience. The show highlights the sometimes ridiculous complexities of policing and the wonderful eccentricities of the Great British Public – with the Radio 4 audience the real stars of the show.
Moore said: ‘I’m a massive fan of Radio 4 and with so much competition for new submissions I’m absolutely delighted to get another series.’
‘The public rightly demand openness and honesty from the police and I plan to once again tread the fine line between comic genius and gross misconduct!’
The new series will have four episodes and is due to air in spring 2017.
