The Last Detective 4 Seasons 2005
Amazon Instant Video
1. Friends Reunited When wealthy mobile-phone magnate Nick Roberts is stabbed at his school reunion, all evidence points to Simon Dabnely--Nick's former best friend, now a bitter drug addict deep in debt. Never content with easy answers, however, Davies actually believes Simon's preposterous alibi and aims to track down the real perpetrator.
2. Towpaths of Glory Decorated war veteran Frank Moore met an undignified end--murdered and dumped on a local rubbish heap. In the investigation, Davies turns up the dead man's less-than-blissful domestic life and turbulent business relations. But the soldiers in Frank's former unit may know more about their murdered comrade. The trouble is, they're not talking.
3. Three Steps to Hendon Back in the 1970s, the Overnite Sensations topped the pop charts with their smash single, "Yesterday's Boy." Ironically, the song's title aptly describes the fading fame of the group's lead singer, Teddy O'Connor, just before his murder. Interviewing Teddy's former band mates and hangers-on, Davies discovers the dark underside of glam rock.
4. Willesden Confidential The death of champion stockcar driver Geoff "The Duke" Fallon seems like an open-and-shut case: a young hoodlum apparently bent on revenge is arrested for sabotaging Fallon's car. But Davies thinks that the case looks too pat to be true. He doggedly pursues the truth despite his boss's orders -- even bringing Julie along for the ride.

We have fallen in love with inspector Lewis! He is a kind person who seems to get the short end of the stick so often. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Linden
The main character is very like able. I also loved the humor in it and that it is not so gory.Published 7 months ago by Sigrun Mehl
One of my favorite shows. I wish Amazon still offered free streaming for this series. When I started watching it, it was free.Published 7 months ago by virginia westlake
This was an unexpected bonus. My wife and I both enjoyed the intelligent mysteries, great characters -- and quite endearing at that. Hated to see the series end. Don't pass it up. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Chet Dembeck
Does not need blood and gore to make up for poor acting and directing. I enjoyed the wry sense of humor.Published 7 months ago by Nick Gaglio

Really enjoyed it. Great stories and wonderfully memorable characters. Especially liked the evolution of the characters' relationships. I wish there were more episodes!Published 7 months ago by Hanna-Mary
What a likeable character. As the seasons progress, he is becoming less of the last detective and more of the one others might look to for help. Peter Davison is superb! Read morePublished 7 months ago by Barbara A. Daugherty
Looking for a good British "who done it"? Well look no further (but start with season 1 of course). It's a worthwhile watch.Published 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
