Paired with her reliable and devoted chauffeur, Mrs Bradley's finely honed skills of investigation seek out the truth behind the mysteries surrounding a death at the opera, crimes of passion at a circus, poisoning and family secrets.
Set in the 1960s, the show follows Endeavour Morse in his early years as a police constable. Working alongside his senior partner DI Fred Thursday, Morse engages in a number of investigations around Oxford.
A British inspector is transferred to Saint-Marie's police department, but he hates the sun, sea, and sand. The series follow his investigations into murders on the island. Later series see another British DI head the investigative team.
With her caustic wit and singular charm, DCI Vera Stanhope and her trusted right-hand man DS Joe Ashworth face a series of captivating murder mysteries set against the breathtaking Northumberland landscape.
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.
I find that Dr Blake is way too grim all the time. I'm getting a bit tired of TV shows that seem to always depict the male protagonist as sad, gloomy, troubled or angry. Rizzoli & Isles gets the balance of natural banter and drama just right.
Also, would it be too expensive for the set directors to add a few more lights to the sets? All the scenes are too dark and gloomy - trying too much to be 'atmospheric' and dramatic?.
The sun shone in the 50s and people had plenty of light bulbs in their homes.
