Show Details

The Ravens are an elite crime fighting unit, formed to fight crime under the media spotlight. In front of the camera, they have to win back the trust of the South African public. Behind the camera, they have to win each other's trust. The Docket is an all new local drama that will debut on SABC 3 from Wednesday, 22nd August 2018 at 21h30.

The Ravens are a specialized unit set up to investigate high-profile crimes in the public eye. The squad members have been chosen for their outstanding investigation skills, but their media relations are more challenging as colonel Marlon van Wyk is not the most diplomatic person. Enter Detective Ntsiki Motshe who has a talent for dealing with the media's many questions.

Together they solve crimes and warm relations between the public and the police.

Each episode will be inspired by true criminal cases, mostly solved by the South African Police Services. Each case will form the solid structure on which each episode is based. The personal and professional lives of the Ravens squad members will be weaved throughout the criminal investigation.

The SAPS is a microcosm of the entire nation. It is one of the few places where people from literally all walks of life are flung together and expected to work and live together, very often under difficult and dangerous circumstances. The fact that Captain Ntsiki Motshe, Colonel Marlon van Wyk and the rest of the team are fighting crime makes what they do important to all of us. The fact that they are winning this battle on the streets, gives us hope and inspiration too!
