Matthew Herbert (A Fantastic WomanDisobedience, The Beast Must Die, Gloria Bell, The Cave, Port Authority, Temple) is the composer of the new BBC drama The Responder. The show is written by ex-police officer Tony Schumacher and stars Martin Freeman, Ian Hart, Adelayo Adedayo, Warren Brown, MyAnna Buring, Romi Hyland-Rylands, Emily Fairn, Josh Finan, Rita Tushingham, Elizabeth Berrington and David Bradley. The series revolves around a morally compromised and unconventional urgent response officer tackling a series of night shifts on the beat in Liverpool who is forced to take on a new rookie partner while trying to keep his head above water both personally and professionally. Laurence Bowen & Chris Carey (The Salisbury Poisonings) are producing the project for Dancing Ledge Productions, alongside Mona Qureshi (Poldark, Call the Midwife) for the BBC. The Responder is premiering tonight in the UK on BBC One and will debut in the U.S. later this year on AMC.

Herbert is also expected to return to score the second season of Noughts + Crosses. He also recently composed the music for the Oscar-shorlisted Panamanian feature Plaza Catedral, which was released locally last year and has just been picked up by Samuel Goldwyn Films for a domestic release this year.
