Infamous diamond heist organizer Jimmy Vincent - affectionately known as Gentleman Jimmy by his old friends and the police force - is released from prison after twenty years. Within a couple of hours of his release a major heist is pulled on a armed vehicle carrying, what else, diamonds! Jimmy and his former gang members are immediate suspects of the list of Davies' boss, DI Aspinall. Written by
Criminal supremo Jimmy Vincent, who was released from prison, is found dead in his house pool days after his release. Coincidentally, on the same day he was released, armed gangsters rob diamonds, using the same method of operation of Jimmy's previous exploits.
Interestingly, DI Aspinall has some sort of respect for Jimmy, and he's quick to get Dangerous and Co to investigate the murder. Jimmy must have been very, very wealthy because in the UK (where The Last Detective is set), many families cannot afford a backyard pool, let alone an indoor pool. You have to have lots of lolly if you know what I mean.
Dangerous is rebuilding his relationship with Julie, with Dangerous now back with Julie. Mod (Sean Hughes), Dangerous's sidekick and former flatmate, has also moved in, but Julie's had enough of his fingernail clippings lying around, so Mod has to leave. I assume there's no racial motivation (Mod is Irish), and tragically, a gangster beats up Mod at his bedsit, thinking he was a grass. Anyway, Dangerous and Julie rescue Mod from the hospital, and take him back in.
After this there are only four more episodes of The Last Detective, which is a fine police drama from the UK, and it's a shame it didn't go for more than four seasons.
