"Griffiths … is a pleasure to watch" --The Globe and Mail (Canada)
Richard Griffiths (Harry Potter, The History Boys) returns for a final season as the long-suffering DI Henry Crabbe. The semi-retired detective would prefer to spend less time catching crooks and more time in the kitchen of Pie in the Sky, the restaurant he runs with his wife, Margaret (Maggie Steed, Shine on Harvey Moon). But as ever, Assistant Chief Constable Freddy Fisher (Malcolm Sinclair, Casino Royale) has other plans for his best officer. Fisher’s latest scheme is his new Public Duties Squad, which hires out police teams for private use. For Crabbe, the end result is the same--a balancing act between keeping Fisher happy and cooking at his beloved Pie in the Sky.
"One of the tastiest of all police shows" (Brattleboro [VT] Reformer), this lighthearted British mystery series was a hit on public television. Guest stars in Series 5 include Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes, Above Suspicion) and Nicola Walker (Touching Evil, MI-5).
