This series follows the antics of 3 retired cops recruited by Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman) to reinvestigate unsolved crimes. Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman), Jack Halford (James Bolam) and Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong) have for a variety of reasons handed over their badges and accepted premature retirement. But their hunger to right the wrongs of the past is still strong, and they're willing to resort to the most unconventional methods if it means they can close a case.
