Ben Caplan plays PC Peter Noakes

How would you describe PC Peter Noakes?
There’s a real sense of chivalry about him, he’s very straight but always very respectful. I really warm to him as a character.

What is the relationship like between PC Noakes and Chummy?
They come together because there are similarities between them. Neither is particularly comfortable in their own skin. We had a rehearsal before we started filming and it felt very easy.
And Miranda and I got on well together when we were just hanging out. I identified with him, and I think she identified with Chummy. I love PC Noakes’ simplicity – he loves Chummy for who she is, and he’s not worried by appearances. She is very authentic.
