A detective with an eye for crime and a nose for pie
"Excellent" --Daily Mail (U.K.)
Henry Crabbe (Richard Griffiths, Harry Potter, The History Boys) continues to balance life as a part-time policeman with his duties as a part-time chef. Having opened a restaurant with his bean-counter wife (Maggie Steed, Shine on Harvey Moon), he hopes his days as a detective are numbered. But the early retirement he craves never seems to come, thanks to the machinations of his self-serving boss, Assistant Chief Constable Fisher (Malcolm Sinclair, Casino Royale), who knows Crabbe is too good a cop to let go.
Richard Griffiths gives a "brilliantly understated performance" (The Times, U.K.) as the beleaguered culinary cop in this lighthearted British mystery series seen on public television.
Great TV series from England, greatly under-rated.
We have had many hours of enjoyment watching these shows.
Would recommend it to any-body.
I bought this to replace the 2nd CD for the one I had cracked when I tried all too hard to get it out of the package. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Roger G. Horn

Henry never fails to entertain his viewers. All of the characters are believable and interesting. Even the chickens are well cast.Published 21 months ago by Betty Burns Hampton
Richard Griffiths provides a wonderful detective ala Nero Wolfe. He is likable without being pompous. Still like to go back and rewatch them.Published on February 4, 2013 by B. D. Kent
