The Last Detective

Detective Constable "Dangerous" Davies is gentle, old-fashioned, and decent--even when drunk. But these qualities only earn the scorn of his colleagues, and his boss tells him he's the last detective he would assign to a major crime-solving mission. Dangerous muddles on, and with the help of his friend Mod proves the merits of his dogged method. Peter Davison (All Creatures Great and Small) stars in this witty British series based on Leslie Thomas's novels.

1. Christine

When wealthy would-be painter Maurice Leyman dies drunk in a fire while shut up in his studio, Davies faces a classic "locked-door mystery." The victime's strangely cool widow certainly had the means and the motive. But the ever-plodding Davies refuses to settle for easy answers.

2. The Long Bank Holiday

A spate of computer thefts from government offices, a possible suicide under the wheels of a high-speed train, an absconded lifer on the loose, and a grisly trove of human bones in a garden all conspire to keep Davies on the job during a long Easter weekend.

3. Benefit to Mankind

With a history of depression, a bloodstream full of booze, and a high-pressure job in medical research, Henry Winton seems like an open-and-shut suicide case after his body turns up in the canal. But the more Davies looks at SwanMed, the less he likes--particularly when Winton's pretty young coworker goes missing.

4. Dangerous and the Lonely Hearts

Brought to the station after nicking some sweets, a waifish Eastern European girl refuses to give even her name. What starts out as a simple case of shoplifting turns into apparent murder, however, after Davies finds the girl's mother strangled. The trail leads to some surprising suspects from a video matchmaking service.
