The series stars Qi Yuwu, Joanne Peh, Aileen Tan and Andie Chen from the first season, with new additions Li Nanxing, Rui En, Thomas Ong, Cavin Soh and Pierre Png as the main characters of the series. The series is co-sponsored by Gain City, Sheng Siong Supermarkets and Gold Roast Coffee. The sequel for C.L.I.F.

The series is the highest-rated drama serial in 2013, with an average viewership of 901,000, beating the record set by It's a Wonderful Life (with 835,000).[2]

A sequel for the drama, C.L.I.F. 3, will air April 9, 2014. Elvin Ng will return to act in the drama series.[3]

Background[edit]

C.L.I.F. 警徽天职 was the 2nd most watched drama for 2011 with an average viewership of 924,000. The final episode attracted over 1,041,000 viewers.[4] It also had 47,844 streams per episode, the highest average number of streams per episode on MediaCorp's Catch-Up TV portal on Xinmsn.

The series was also praised for the departure away from an idealised depiction of police officers and its realistic portrayal of the unseen struggles and obstacles police officers often face. In response, MediaCorp commissioned a second season, again in collaboration with the SPF, and filming began at the end of September. Most of the main cast is retained. Prior to filming, it was confirmed that Tay Ping Hui and Tracy Lee will not be returning and Rui En, Pierre Png and Li Nanxing will join the cast. C.L.I.F. 2 is made its debut on 18 February 2013.[5]

Synopsis[edit]

The series continues from where C.L.I.F. left off with new cases and new cast members. Yew Jia (Qi Yuwu) is now a Senior Investigating Officer and has begun a relationship with Xin Yi (Joanne Peh), who had partnered with him in the CID on a temporary transfer. Former uniformed officer Kok Hung (Andie Chen) was recently transferred to the Special Investigations Section in the CID. Seetoh Yan (Aileen Tan) remains in charge but is assigned as Head Investigation Officer as well.

Yew Jia is assigned a new partner Jimmy (Cavin Soh), a veteran policeman, and their friendship begins awkwardly when Jimmy accidentally mistook Yew Jia for a molester and "arrests" him. Kok Hung's follow-the-book approach does not bode well with his partners as he has to learn to adjust to a different way of approaching cases than he was used to during his days on uniformed patrol at a NPC. His superior is Tse Keat (Rui En), a headstrong career woman who has yet to find her other half. When her long-time colleague and forensics expert Lantian (Li Nanxing) challenges her to meet someone as a speed-dating event, not wanting to lose the wager, she accepts. Xin Yi's dream comes true when she earns a transfer to the CID and assigned to the Serious Sexual Crimes Branch. She meets the resident medical examiner Dr Chow (Thomas Ong) and becomes torn between him and Yew Jia.

The officers from the different branches at Tanglin Police Division work together to tackle all sorts of cases ranging from misdemeanours such as theft to more major cases such as violent crime, elaborate scams and prostitution. Unfortunately for some, their personal lives interfere with their jobs and they are forced to make difficult decisions. Kok Hung is grief-stricken when his fiancée is murdered and struggles to keep his emotions in check. Seetoh Yan gets a shock of her life when her usually mild-mannered son becomes a suspect in separate rape and assault cases. Xin Yi becomes worried her sister Jen is hanging out with the wrong crowd when Jen becomes a suspect in one of Yew Jia's cases. Keat's memory of her own sister's disappearance and murder returns to haunt her during a series of kidnapping-cum-murder investigations and the similarities in modus operandi leads her to suspect the same perpetrator has returned. Meanwhile, a dashing young psychologist (Pierre Png) Tse Keat and Lantian befriend is not all he seems.
