When a colleague is accused of murdering a wealthy executive, the Professor of Criminology is right on the chase ,
31 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although it's not exactly suspense and drama, there is something quite pleasing in watching the father-and-son duo Dick and Barry Van Dyke. It borrows a lot from Diagnosis Murder but then I quite like that so I don't mind. It's the same sort of set-up: miraculously someone gets murdered in the close vicinity of Dick van Dyke's character and he just has to solve it. It never ceases to amaze how the local police force can be so useless that they always seem to need his help in solving murders but I suppose that might be part of the charm of programmes starring Dick. He is always the gracious and charming old gentleman who has time for his day job as well as a bit of crime solving on the side.

I doubt it will be winning any awards but it's well worth watching if you like a bit of cheesy crime solving...
