Those stars of course being Father and Son double act Dick and Barry Van Dyke, So, if like me, you enjoyed 'Diagnosis Murder' or really any other mystery series such as Perry Mason or Murder she wrote, I'm sure you'll enjoy this TVM, the first of 4 to date.
Dick van Dyke plays Dr Mark Slo...I mean Dr Jonathan Maxwell, a rather forgetful Professor of Criminology, a role which isn't a world away from his former character on 'DM', and Barry van Dyke is Steve Slo... I mean Mike Bryant an Ex-cop turned Private Eye, They aren't father and son this time, but friends who have known each other for over 30 years and end up working together on cases, this one being of an mysterious explosion which killed a CEO of a thought-to-be successful company which could be in financial difficulty and try to clear the name of woman who was last seen arguing with the deceased.
Like I said if you've seen the aforementioned series' above you'll know what to expect, and although It has a similar feel to other Hallmark Channel productions of late such as 'Mystery Woman', 'Jane Doe' & 'Mcbride' the inclusion of the Van Dyke's lift this above most of them in terms of quality.
