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.

When animal activist Robin Chanellor is found savaged to death inside the tiger cage at Latimer's Private Zoo, Dalziel suspects someone is responsible for murder, when forensics found at the scene don't match the injuries on Chanellor's body. The case holds many memories for Dalziel, as Simon "Tiger" Harper, the lover of the zoo's owner, Guy Latimer, disappeared more than 25 years previously after being accused of murdering another local man at a dinner party. As old grievances again rear their ugly head, the death of another reveals a sinister business of illegal organ transplants taking place at night. Meanwhile, Pascoe is forced to come to terms with what he wants from life when ex-wife Ellie and daughter Rosie unexpectedly arrive.
