Six to Watch: TV detectives

4 May 2010 11:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Idris Elba explodes onto screen as Luther tonight – but which other great telly-detectives does he follow? And can he match them?

Idris Elba's Luther might not have a great deal in common with Miss Marple – I can't see him going down a storm in St Mary Mead, for instance. But that is the beauty of television crime-solving – it's a broad church, with room for amateur sleuths, moody inspectors, razor-sharp detectives and everything in between.

That, however, brings its problems – with every man and his dog apparently having a hand (or paw) in solving crime. So we've limited our search for the best television detectives to professional police or private detectives, rather than the full array of part-time consultants, busybodies and hobbyist gumshoes (although I'm sure we'll come to them another time). So here are our "top of the cops"– six great TV detectives to watch. Who would you have included? »
