Why did Joy Freers die in No Offence?

Starring as DS Joy Freers, a Detective Sergeant in the Manchester Metropolitan Police, Alexandra Roach appeared in all three seasons of the British television police procedural drama No Offence.

Her character was killed in the line of duty while protecting mayoral candidate Caroline McCoy (Lisa McGrillis) in the opening sequence of the third series. The episode aired on September 13, 2018.

“Essentially it’s because the actress wanted to leave,” screenwriter Paul Abbott told RadioTimes about Alexandra Roach’s sudden departure from the series. “We decided it was better to kill her than just to let her go off somewhere.”

“The audience would always feel like she was due back if you just send them off – in Home and Away they used to send them all off to Perth, didn’t they? Whenever anyone left they went to Perth in case they wanted to come back. And we wanted it to be definitive,” he added.
