Red Cap (TV series)

This article is about the 2000s BBC series. For the 1960s ITV series, see Redcap (TV series).


Red Cap is a British television drama series produced by Stormy Pictures for the BBC[1] and broadcast on BBC One. Two series of six episodes each were produced following a feature length pilot. It featured the investigations (and personal relationships) of an Special Investigation Branch unit of the Royal Military Police based in Germany. Ostensibly the lead character was Sergeant Jo McDonagh (nicknamed McDoughnut), played by Tamzin Outhwaite, but the show was more of an ensemble piece, with several notable characters coming to prominence.
