Different types of narrative

Some crime drama’s choose to show and solve a crime within one episode, whereas others may show a series of episodes solving one crime, for example ITV drama series that are on for one week only, like ‘Appropriate adult’ showing at the moment.

Narratives within crime drama are also often organised around binary opposites, for example the conflict between the forces of law and order and criminal activity.
