TV TOPICS WIN PS5.

Byline: Edited by FIONA PARKER

The new drama series Shades of Blue on Sky Living appears to be attempting something different from the usual US crime show. It's deep and dark, exploring the subject of police corruption with dramatic flair. Multitalented Jennifer Lopez makes a smooth transition to TV as tough New York cop and single mother Harlee Santos.

There is a bit of conventional gun-toting action, but the emphasis is on characterisation and psychology.

Shades of Blue is one of the most powerful and gripping dramas of the summer.

Annette Badland is fantastic as Babe in EastEnders.

She plays the character so menacingly, she terrifies me. God forbid anyone who gets on the wrong side of her. I thought Kathy Bates in Misery was scary, but Babe gives her a run for her money.
