Dalziel and Pascoe
Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel is vulgar, blunt-talking, politically incorrect, and often insensitive. He's from the old school of policing, and relies on his instinct, knowledge of human nature and experience to get results. Warren Clarke, one of Britain's best-loved actors, gives a consummate performance as the politically incorrect, no-nonsense copper with a penetrating wit and questionable personal habits.
Dalziel does not suffer fools gladly, but he has even more trouble with what he calls the "smart arses" of this world. So, when the inexperienced, soft-spoken, whiz-kid graduate Peter Pascoe joins his team at Mid-Yorkshire CID, he is in for a rough ride. Peter Pascoe (Colin Buchanan) is the perfect foil as Dalziel's cultured side kick. One of the new breed of career police officers, he is armed with a degree in Social Sciences, a caring attitude and a sharp brain. At first Pascoe is somewhat taken aback by his brash and ballsy boss, but it soon becomes apparent there is more to Andy Dalziel than meets the eye.
