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.
On Beulah Height Part 1 of 2 (#123) Duration: 53:02 STEREO TVPG
Dalziel and Pascoe investigate the kind of case that even hardened coppers dread - the murder of an 8-year-old girl. The team is called in when Lorraine Dacre disappears in the hills outside a small village - her body is soon discovered hidden in a hole at a local beauty spot, Beulah Height. The murder brings back vivid memories for Dalziel. 15 years earlier he headed an investigation into the disappearance of another young girl from the same village - Mary, the daughter of Chloe and Walter Wulfstan. The killer was never found. One suspect - Benny Lightfoot - was arrested but released by Dalziel due to lack of evidence. Villagers are now convinced that Benny, who disappeared after the murder, has returned to claim another victim. Dalziel and Pascoe are not so sure.
