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 student Lisa Johnstone is kidnapped in broad daylight, PC Jackson finds herself at the mercy of two local thugs after trying to intervene, ending with herself being kidnapped too. Meanwhile, music teacher Visha Iqbal is found stabbed in a ditch and a letter is sent to his wife explaining the details of his affair with none other than Lisa Johnstone. As Dalziel and Pascoe run through an everlasting list of suspects, an art dealer whom Pascoe assisted after saving her from a hit and run is found murdered at the bottom of a ravine, with her car having been run off the road. And when a third body is pulled from a nearby river, Dalziel quickly deduces that all three killings and Lisa's kidnapping are all related.
