As you can hear, Sandra plays an English cop in the series, and in various interviews she talked about how the accent turned out to be a challenge for her: 

The first day of work was the hardest first day I’ve ever had in my career; I had mental breakdown after mental breakdown.

I’ve never experienced that [feeling] before where you’re just barrelling towards failure and humiliation. - Source
