BBC: Who is The Sheriffs Are Coming narrator? 2020 series 9 cast explored

The Sheriffs Are Coming narrator may sound familiar, so let’s get to know him a little as series 9 continues to reach screens.

It’s hard to think of any other recent year in which TV has felt so important.

Much of 2020 has been spent indoors and with few places to go. So, it’s only natural that we’ve spent more time curled up on the sofa with a good cuppa tuning into the box.

Despite production issues plaguing many beloved titles, we’ve still been treated to a wealth of great shows so far this year.

As always, the BBC has provided plenty of them and fans are eager to tuck into new episodes of The Sheriffs Are Coming.

Taking a fly on the wall approach, this documentary series first aired back in 2012 and has invited viewers to spectate the work of High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs) for 9 series now.

For those new to the show or perhaps unfamiliar with his voice, let’s spotlight its narrator…
