All five episodes from the first season of Channel 4's historical drama series set in the vice-ridden world of Georgian London, in which Henry and John Fielding (Ian McDiarmid and Iain Glen), magistrates of Westminster, become the founders of the modern police force. Investigating the lives and crimes of prostitutes, pimps, gamblers and villains in a world in which the rules of policing have not yet been invented, the Fielding brothers have to design and implement policing procedures as they go - and in the process become the architects of modern-day policing.
