  • Meet Sgt. Nicholas Angel. He's good. Too good. So good at what he does that his department has decided to make him disappear because he's making the rest of the department look bad. So as a token of his appreciation the Metropolitan Police Service decides to transfer him to a small country village known as Sanford, Gloucestershire. Upon arrival, Nicholas quickly settles into his new surroundings and becomes familiar with the townsfolk, who all have unique personalities and are very friendly with one another. They govern themselves under an ultra-strict organization called the Neighborhood Watch Alliance. He's assigned to a station with a number of officers who don't take the job as seriously as he does. Now paired with Danny Butterman, the Inspector's son, who is a bumbling, overweight officer who has an uncontrollable love of Hollywood action films and thinks that everything Nicholas does mirrors the movies he loves. But when the town's residents start dying one by one, Nicholas and Danny soon undercover a massive conspiracy while the village struggles to maintain its' "village of the year" distinction. Since there has been no recorded murder in Sanford in 20 years, Nicholas and Danny have a hard time unraveling the conspiracy. Can they stop it before it's too late?

  • Nicholas Angel is the finest cop London has to offer, with an arrest record 400% higher than any other officer on the force. He's so good, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, Angel's superiors send him to a place where his talents won't be quite so embarrassing - the sleepy and seemingly crime-free village of Sandford. Once there, he is partnered with the well-meaning but overeager police officer Danny Butterman. The son of amiable Police Chief Frank Butterman, Danny is a huge action movie fan and believes his new big-city partner might just be a real-life "bad boy," and his chance to experience the life of gunfights and car chases he so longs for. Angel is quick to dismiss this as childish fantasy and Danny's puppy-like enthusiasm only adds to Angel's growing frustration. However, as a series of grisly accidents rocks the village, Angel is convinced that Sandford is not what it seems and as the intrigue deepens, Danny's dreams of explosive, high-octane, car-chasing, gunfighting, all-out action seem more and more like a reality. It's time for these small-town cops to break out some big-city justice.

  • Sgt. Nicholas Angel is just about the perfect copper: honest, reliable, and dedicated to public duty. The only problem is that he is too good. His arrest record is so good that he is making everyone else look bad so he suddenly finds himself transferred to the picturesque village of Sandford. There he not only finds that the police force is less than ideal, but that there is in fact very little policing to do. The odd drunk and a few lads with a can of spray paint are about all there is to worry about. He becomes friendly with Constable Danny Butterman, who just happens to be the station chief's son. Suddenly however, there is a rash of murders that leads him to believe there is a massive conspiracy to keep the village clean and inoffensive.
