In this Dutch police detective series, Detective Jurriaan 'Jurre' de Cock is sort of the 'Columbo' of a Dutch police city's police department, as deceptively poor in appearance (cheap raincoat) but always able to outsmart the crooks, usually a murderer per episode. He does however have a competent team, especially his young, promising right-hand Detective Dick Vledder and the more modest, often separately standard-researching Detective Albert 'Appie' Keizer, while Chief Corneel Buitendam is not too helpful; another regular is forensic examiner Dr. Ennaeus den Koninghe.Written by
In spring 2007 RTL4 started airing episodes from the first few seasons on late Sunday evenings, advertising them as "Baantjer Classics". Each rerun was introduced by Piet Römer (playing De Cock). These reruns scored an average of 300,000 viewers, which was lower than any previous Baantjer airing, be it a rerun or a new episodes. See more »
Normally the footage for the title credits changed each season, being composed of footage from the new season's episodes. However, the 10th, 11th and 12th seasons had the same opening credits as the 9th, possibly because starting with the 9th season it became standard for episodes to be delayed one season (episodes shot for season 9 were aired as season 10 and so forth).

Piet Romer is of course
my number 1 favorite
it depends on
how he portrays
the character De Cock,
and that was so worldclass,
i mean he was a legend.
Victor Reinier plays his sidekick.
Between Victor Reinier
and Piet Romer is many
chemistry you feel that.
where never lame
but incredible strong builed.
