Sadly the last episode of The Last Detective
21 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love the Last Detective and this sadly is the final episode. Only 17 episodes altogether but it's a British police drama (with a mix of humor) series I can watch over and over. It's that good.

In this episode Dangerous investigates the murder of a member of a secret gentlemen's club, and accusations abound amidst the club's high value insurance policies on its members.

A tense subplot is Dangerous thinking his wife Julie is having an affair, but as it turns out it was nothing of the sort. In fact, Julie was having job interviews for a job in Paris, and she was excited to tell a relieved Dangerous that she got the job. If there was a fifth series, it would have been interesting to see Dangerous commuting back and forth to Paris, and even solving a crime or two near the Eiffel Tower.

I really wish The Last Detective will come back, but at least we have 17 very fine episodes.
