The series focused on various murders in the fictional suburban English town of Middleford. The crimes are solved by two female police detectives, Inspector Kate Ashurst and Sergeant Emma Scribbins, aka "Ash and Scribbs".
Patrick Stewart stars as science professor Ian Hood, who works for the Home Office as a consultant on special dangerous cases that involve deadly viruses, cloning experiments etc. Special Branch agent Rachel Young is his partner.
Kevin Whatley disappoints in this boring and lame series featuring an insurance investigator. Nothing works in this series. It has unresolved plot lines and overall bad acting. And, its theme tune which is so evidently a ripoff from 'careless whispers', is just plain bad. Lasting just 2 seasons, this show is also badly directed and contains more domestic drama than actual mystery.
This show is nothing like Morse or even Lewis. As an investigator, Griffin is clueless. This only reason why Whatley stills gets roles is because of Morse's legacy.
I would not recommend this series.
