Grafters was a British drama–comedy programme originally broadcast in the UK on ITV from 27 October 1998 to 20 December 1999 for 16 episodes over two series.[1]

The show regularly received ratings of over 9 million viewers[2] and at the time was among ITV's most popular drama series. Rumours of a revival surfaced in 2006,[3] but no further episodes have been made.
