The lack of new content being produced has led the main channels repeating some classic shows for viewers to enjoy or new audiences to discover for the first time.
Black Work follows policewoman P.C. Jo Gillespie (played by Sheridan Smith) whose life is thrown into chaos after her husband D.S. Ryan Gillespie (Kenny Doughty) is killed.
Ryan was working as an undercover officer, but his death soon leads Jo to ask lots of questions.
Amid all of this, Jo was considering leaving her husband after D.C Jack Clark (Matthew McNulty) suggested she should be with him.
