Unravelling the mysterious and lurid crimes of Victorian society
Based on the novels of prize-winning author Peter Lovesey and filled with lavish period detail and jaw-dropping plot twists, the adventures of Sergeant Cribb cast a spotlight on the dark underbelly of Victorian life.
From the vulgar brothels of Londons fogbound streets to the respectable royal apartments of Windsor Castle, Sergeant Cribb maintains a level head and a wry sense of humour to unravel complex crimes in Queen Victorias England. A detective of Scotland Yards newly formed Criminal Investigation Department, Cribb receives little support for his efforts from his superiors. Wearing his trademark bowler hat and squeaky boots, Cribb relies on his own shrewdness and the plodding assistance of Constable Thackeray to expose the vile deeds of Victorian criminals. approx. 298 mins. col.
