Various mishaps at a police station in an English town. The main character is the anachronistic, yet charming and funny Inspector Fowler. CID foil to Fowler, Inspector Grim is a bumbling, seething idiot.
Oh ha ha!! lets laugh our faces off at a little old lady that cannot even remember the most basic things. Why should we just laugh at the indignity of becoming old and senile so that you have to rely upon others to live.
The acting is of a high standard, with excellent Stephanie Cole as Peggy. She plays the part convincingly and does put a miniscule amount of humour into the show. Meera Syal is also entertaining as that moaning daughter-in-law Tina who always has a "meeeeeeeegraaaaaain!"
In overall a fine cast playing in a program which sadly peaked on pre-broadcast adverts.
