This long-running, award-winning series combines masterful storytelling with tense crime solving, indelible characters, and sly humor. Amanda Redman (Sexy Beast) stars as dishy, driven superintendent Sandra Pullman. She heads a team of aging detectives pulled out of retirement for a job they're uniquely qualified to do: tackle cold cases-some of them decades old.
Each detective has a gloomy personal history. Jack Halford (James Bolam, The Beiderbecke Affair) lost his wife to a hit-and-run driver. Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman, The Sweeney) is a ladies' man with a past he'd prefer to keep quiet. Brian Lane (Bleak House) is an alcoholic with marital problems. Even workaholic Sandra must cope with a shattering secret, revealed during a grisly situation. Season Six of the hit detective drama finds the team in top form, cracking cases and jokes with equal flair. 8 episodes, 3 DVDs, approx. 470 minutes, SDH.
