Retired cops solve cold cases in this hit British series
At the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad, three former detectives and their lovely, ambitious boss (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast) tackle cases abandoned by the Metropolitan Police. Although their crime-solving skills are top-notch, the detectives each have their fair share of personal demons. Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman, The Sweeney) is a womanizer, Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong, Garrow’s Law) is depressed, and Jack Halford (James Bolam, The Beiderbecke Affair) is mourning the death of his wife. Can this curmudgeonly trio of crime busters learn new tricks to crack tough crimes?
Seen on public television, this long-running, award-winning British series features a brilliant cast, top guest stars, deft writing, and an irresistible blend of compelling drama and dry humor. This collection contains Seasons 1-5 of “one of the BBC’s best-loved dramas” (Daily Mail, U.K.).
Due to music rights, Seasons 1 and 3 have been modified for home video presentation.

Best series ever. Great characters and the acting is top shelf. I like that this detective series comes with a sense of humor.Published 25 days ago by Beachwalker
We own the whole series and it is one of the best we have ever seen.
There are very original plots and great acting on the part of this group.
The mysteries are intriguing (albeit not difficult to solve) but the characters and actors are simply fascinating! A real joy for we again baby boomers.Published 2 months ago by Deborah Lamb-Mechanick
Very entertaining with a wonderful cast - each member of the group has his or her quirks that keep it interesting but when on a case, they get the job done. Read morePublished 2 months ago by J. Simmons
