|DI Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman) heads up a squad of 3 "semi-retired" former cops ... of retirement age. These three (played by Alun Armstrong, James Bolam, & Dennis Waterman) often steal the show with their antics. All are good at their work and the squad has a great record of closing cases, however, the three guys are often dealing with their own crazy quirks, family difficulties, and age related worries. It makes for some good comedy as well as for good stories. Both the writing and the actors are very good as well as a host of great guest appearances. It is fun and I do recommend it. It is in at least its 6th or 7th season so has been well received.
