Director of CPS Henry Sharpe

Peter Davison, well-known for his role as the Fifth Doctor on “Doctor Who” (1982-1984), plays Crown Prosecutor Service Director Henry Sharpe, taking over the post from George Castle at the beginning of Season 3. As boss to Alesha Phillips and Jacob Thorne, Henry is both fair and firm. “He is not aggressive but if he has to he’ll tell them off and put them on the right track,” Davison said. “There is no dark side to him. He is in a position of power and trust for a good reason.”
