| BBC at its best - minus the political correctness
I have watched several of the earlier episodes of this brilliant BBC detective series. It has it all: clever plots that are never quite what they seem to be, a dry "British" (I think it is universal) sense of subtle humor, two interesting leads who work perfectly together in their roles, topical plots (circa 1960's but still interesting) that are a cut above your normal plots and do not pull any punches, a quality sense of drama that packs a huge emotional punch (see Season 2 episode 1 'Gently with the innocents' and tell me you are not moved).

I have watched many BBC series, detective and otherwise, sometimes with mixed results. This series is right up there at the top except for one big flaw. The writers, as many times happens, editorialize in their plots. If they removed the political correctness and stuck to good detective plots I would have added stars.
