Teddy O'Connor was the lead singer for a rock-and-roll band during the Seventies and the object of adoration for his many teen-aged fans. Twenty years later after he is found dead in his modest flat, a whiskey bottle shoved down his throat. The motive seems rooted in the past and Davies interviews other group members, his corrupt manager, and those who knew him twenty years earlier. Written by

Nigel Planer plays a poignant role
17 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three Steps to Hendon focuses on the death of a former rock star. Nigel Planer (who rocketed to stardom as Neil in The Young Ones) plays down and out former band member Gerry Jameson, who meets a sad self-inflicted fate, leaving behind his poor dog:( Jameson lamented to Dangerous that he was yesterday's boy.

DI Aspinall and Dangerous bond a bit through their love of the deceased lead singer, and Dangerous has to put up with the drinking habits (even on the job) of Aspinall. In the previous episode, Dangerous discovered Aspinall was attending AA meetings, and had a list of people to say thanks to, etc, and Dangerous was on the list.

Dangerous and Julie attempt to put some spark in their relationship, with Dangerous not immediately answering an emergency call when he visited her. Quite suggestive I guess.

One feature of The Last Detective is its gritty look at London. In Midsomer Murders you don't really come across a tube station. One thing in common that The Last Detective has with Midsomer Murders (and Lewis) is the number of scenes in pubs.

Ian McNeice appears as Billy Wunder, a rock impresario. A year earlier he made his debut as Bert Large in Doc Martin.

The St Bernard is so cute!
