This introduction details the key conventions that define the police series genre, sets out a rationale for the book, identifies the key gaps in existing knowledge, and summarises the book’s structure. The methodology adopted merges feminist studies of television drama with theatre semiotics to discern how socio-economic changes to British society have been visually communicated through representations of the police station and domestic settings.
