This is FANTASTIC!!! These are older, retired fellas, ex-coppers, bought out of retirement to solve ‘cold case’ crimes. Their boss can be a cranky bitch – but they are individually ‘off-track’, but form a solid team to solve interesting cases.

I am a huge fan of this show. I love shows that are character driven. This show’s characters are so well defined that the stories just flow naturally. The acting and writing are superb. I am especially tickled when the characters use a British-ism that I’ve never heard! The plots stories are nicely complex, but there is room for on-going stories for the characters without seeming forced. We just purchased Season 2 and are enjoying it as well.

Truly refreshing and entertaining series with a great cast. The more you see it the more you get to know and understand the characters and their personalities which are varied and unique.

The series episodes stay on as high a level as the pilot.

The stories held my interest while the character development weaves in and out with humor and sometimes sadness.

Any detective show which can make me laugh several times while maintaining a serious story is worth the viewing time in my opinion.

If I could give more stars to this than 5 here at Amazon, I would. This is my first major discovery of the new year. Only in the UK would the basis of a show be about three retired detectives who come back to work for a driven babe suddenly demoted to head up the cold case squad. Three superb UK character actors play the senior detectives. The show is just as much about the comedy and drama of their own lives as it is about cold cases. One detective is a three time divorcee yet ironically he is the big family man. It is hilarious to see him having dinner either in or out with all three ex wives, his three daughters and his grandson. His scenes with this entourage are priceless. Then there is the one who is OCD and has to take psychiatric medicine for same. His disability makes him a treasure trove of info about everything pertaining to police investigations. There is no info too obscure for him. These two are rounded out by the third, the most respectable and distinguished of the three retirees. However, he cannot recover from the loss of his wife to a hit and run driver when she was only 51. So he talks to her shrine in the back yard and visits clairvoyants. And he was a detective chief inspector. The babe is in charge of these three and keeping them under any semblance of control is the best she can achieve. They run rings around her at every chance. Best news of all is that this show is on its sixth season in the UK.
