One of ‘TV’s Best Shows’ –Blue Lights – is coming to M-Net starring Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon actors

The Guardian called it “gripping, nuanced, almost unbearably tense” and “one of TV’s best shows”. Now Blue Lights which looks at three police rookies as they take on crime in the Irish city of Belfast, is coming to The Home of Entertainment - M-Net (DStv Channel 101).

Viewers can catch this BBC-produced six-parter on Wednesday, September 20 at 22h00 and available on DStv catch up.

The cast features some of the UK and Ireland’s top talent – including Richard Dormer (best known as Beric Dondarrian from Game of Thrones), Siân Brooke (Sherlock, House of the Dragon) and Katherine Devlin (Vikings). Viewers will sit shotgun with fresh officers Grace (Brooke), Annie (Devlin), and Tommy (Nathan Braniff) as they navigate the challenges of their new job.

Grace is a single mother who’s determined to make a difference in the world, meanwhile Annie is a former social worker who’s still troubled by the trauma she witnessed in her previous job. Tommy, a hopeful recruit who’s eager to prove himself. Together, they deal with the pressures that come with being a police officer in a city that’s struggling with high levels of crime and violence. Dormer plays Constable Gerard – Tommy’s veteran training officer.

“We’re thrilled to have another top-quality drama on M-Net,” says Channel Director: Premium Channels Waldimar Pelser. “Blue Lights tackles some of the most pressing issues in the police force, including racism, corruption, and mental health. It’s sure to get viewers engaged.”
