At the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad, three former detectives and their lovely, ambitious boss (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast) tackle cases abandoned by the Metropolitan Police. Although their crime-solving skills are top-notch, the detectives each have their fair share of personal demons. Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman, The Sweeney) is a womanizer, Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong, Garrow's Law) is depressed, and Jack Halford (James Bolam, The Beiderbecke Affair) is mourning the death of his wife. Can this curmudgeonly trio of crime busters learn new tricks to crack tough crimes?
