With the help of DS John Bacchus, Inspector George Gently spends his days bringing to justice members of the criminal underworld who are unfortunate enough to have the intrepid investigator assigned to their cases.
Working from his home in a converted windmill, Jonathan Creek is a magician with a natural ability for solving puzzles. He soon puts this ability to the use of solving impossible crimes and mysterious murders.
Psychotherapist Laurie Poole adamantly insists that she has evidence of horrific sexual abuse and an undetected homicide for the Cold Case Team. She has recovered the repressed memory of patient Terence Tanner from his days as an institutionalized young teenager. He recalls not only his own abuse but that of another young man who was subsequently murdered. Circumstances overcome Boyd's initial resistance when Tanner disappears and the newly excavated 600 year old skeleton of a young boy in a Medieval cemetery is found to have DNA matching Tanner's.
