Scotland Yard’s Toughest Undercover Cop

Peter Bleksley is a former New Scotland Yard detective, presenter and author. Viewers of New Scotland Yard Files will most likely recognise him as the ‘The Chief’ on Channel 4’s Hunted from 2015 until 2019.

A decade later, he went on to create the Scotland Yard’s Undercover SO10 unit.
