BBC pulls climax of Good Cop drama

The final episode of Good Cop, starring Warren Brown, has been taken out of the BBC schedules after the deaths of two police officers in Greater Manchester

The BBC has pulled the final episode of its drama Good Cop after the murders of policewomen Fiona Bone and Nicola Hughes.

The drama, starring former Hollyoaks and Luther actor Warren Brown, features scenes of a violent attack on a female police officer.

In a statement, the BBC said: "In light of news events, BBC One has postponed the final episode of Good Cop due to transmit at 9pm tonight."

Programme bosses were keen to avoid any further distress to the friends, families and colleagues of Pc Bone, 32, and Pc Hughes, 23, who were murdered in Greater Manchester on Tuesday morning.

The two officers died in a gun and grenade attack after being lured to a house in Hattersley, Tameside, on a "routine" call.

A new transmission date for the Good Cop episode will be confirmed in due course.

Replacing the drama will be a 9pm repeat of comedy series Outnumbered, followed by an edition of Have I Got Old News For You.

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
