“People seem to have a real curiosity about what the police do and how they do things and it just makes for a good story, I think.”
Davies named some of his favourite TV series including the American cop show Hill Street Blues, which he said was the most accurate when he first joined the police force.
He also listed The Sweeney with more recent shows including ITV’s Des and The Pembrokeshire Murders.
The detective said he was pleased with the authenticity and accuracy of these programmes.
Davies’ consulting firm Cops on Film & TV is now busy offering up their expertise on a whole host of projects including recently advising on The Bay season three. He is also working on a script for his own TV show.
