Episode 01


The show explodes into action with the pursuit of a sledgehammer gang who raided a Co-op in Hebden Bridge. Serious resources are thrown at serious criminals, as multiple pursuit drivers, stinger teams, the police helicopter and specialist dog units come together to bring the whole gang to justice, putting four dangerous men behind bars for four years a piece.

In Chapeltown, eagle-eyed Interceptor Tom spots what looks like a drug deal taking place in a stationary car. When the culprit makes a run for it, the interceptor gives chase on foot but is thwarted when his fleeing suspect jumps into a moving car. Attention turns to the vehicle he fled in the first place, which turns out to contain the motherlode of cannabis and nitrous oxide.

Meanwhile, a minor stop for poor driving ends with a tussle in the cells and a repeat offender going to prison; Wayne reaches the end of his tether with a driver who claims to be selling a car at 2:00am, and Nick and Bobo help put Mouth Almighty away for a 12-week stretch.

Both vehicles are virtually destroyed by the impact; it’s up to the Interceptors to deal with the aftermath and track down the culprit.

Meanwhile, a second member of the public collides with a villain with very different results – knocking seven bells out of the burglar he disturbs in his hallway. Steve Huntington arrives at the scene to get a blow by blow account from the homeowner who delivered a wailing, bloodied man into the hands of the cops.

On the M62, interceptor Adie Fickling helps box in a stolen Mercedes that’s travelled all the way from Cambridgeshire. While in Leeds city centre, Tom and Wayne are on the hunt for masked motorcyclists causing chaos in the early hours.

Set tasers to stun, the Interceptors are back.

Episode 05

In this action-packed episode, James Carrington and Dan Machin race to assist colleagues who are pursuing a stolen Peugeot. The car is racing along the M1 at 100 mph and showing no signs of stopping – and to make matters worse it’s recklessly weaving across all four lanes of the busy motorway.

Before the Interceptors can bring the runaway car to a stop the driver takes matters into his own hands and crashes into their pursuit car. The lads in the stolen car make off into the undergrowth – but the interceptors are hot on their heels.

Interceptors Jim Carrington and Dan Machin travel on blues and twos to tackle a sledge hammer heist at a convenience store.  The hammer wielding robber ransacked the tills and shattered the stock room door, leaving staff and customers terrified, before fleeing into the night.  In true interceptor style, the culprit is in cuffs but it seems there could be more to his behaviour than meets the eye.

Meanwhile, Katie’s rushed off her feet bagging two shoplifting suspects who’ve allegedly stolen almost a grand’s worth of chocolate, before turning her attention to helping Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs to intercept a big cash parcel coming into the county.

Ky, Katie and the team soon catch up with a gobby geezer, but is he the same man who led them on a merry dance around town?

A dopey driver gets caught by interceptor Phil Broughton driving under the influence of cannabis just days after getting his licence back from committing the same offence. And as the Knife Crime Unit patrol a Nottingham inner-city suburb, a shifty character with a bulge in his trousers arouses suspicion. Interceptor Steve King draws the short straw and pops his hands down the man’s trousers. But will it be a lucky dip?
