Stephan Derrick is "Oberinspektor" at the Munich police. Together with his assistant Harry Klein he has to solve murder cases. This series is more based on psychological methods to find out who was the murderer, than on action scenes and car chases. Derrick prefers to talk to people and learn more about their personalities. Therefor the telephone is a very important instrument to him. Written by

The phrase "Harry, hol schon mal den Wagen" (Harry, bring the car around) was attributed to Derrick and became part of pop culture at least in Germany and China, although it was never spoken in any of the show's 281 episodes. See more »
I grew up with this series too. I probably started watching this when I was 4 or 5 years old, and watched it up until recently. I normally never watch German series, but this one was something special. Todays kids may find it antiquated and corny, but I like it.
