Series overview
 
Starring and executive produced by Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor Rob Lowe, Wild Bill is a fish-out-of-water crime drama following high-flying US police chief Bill Hixon, who is appointed Chief Constable in Boston, Lincolnshire. Landing in the UK with his teenage daughter Kelsey in tow, Bill is ready to tackle the county’s crime figures, armed with a range of statistics and algorithms with every intention of getting in and out as quickly as possible. However, Bill soon discovers the people of Boston are just as smart-mouthed, cynical and difficult to impress as he is, and the man who’s spent his life keeping the messiness of human intimacy at arm’s length is reluctantly propelled into frontline policing and forced to reconsider his relationship with those closest to him. 
 
Episode 3
 
Bill launches a PR offensive when a leaked list of potential redundancies turns his team against him, and courts Boston’s old folks by claiming his new approach will make them safer.
 
However, when a routine burglary turns out to be something much bigger, Bill finds himself facing a public panic, fuelled by The Stump.
 
Discovering DNA in one of the burglary scenes, the team find a match, but with the culprit missing, they go to visit his estranged daughter, Alma, who works at the local library. With Alma not having seen her father since she was young, the team must work hard to track him down.
 
Meanwhile, Bill’s relationship with Mary begins to deepen and Oleg keeps up the pressure on Muriel.
