15 Minute Drama, Craven Episode 1 of 5

The police drama by Amelia Bullmore, starring Maxine Peake, returns for a new series - with a strange case that is set to get more bizarre as the week unfolds.

"You have to be careful of the bizarre, because one man's odd is another man's system."

The episode begins when the body is found of a strangled man, with a missing finger and an extra front tooth. For Craven, alarm bells ring and she suspects the trade mark maiming of criminal mastermind Tony Lau.
The trail leads the team to a domestic address that has been converted into a cannabis factory.

This popular series is created by an all female production crew in Manchester and stars Maxine Peake as DCI Sue Craven.
