The Last Detective

Show Summary

Welcome to the The Last Detective guide at TV.com.

"Dangerous" Davies is a detective constable working the streets of Willesden with heart and some self doubts, and the show relates his interactions with his sidekick Mod, his tough boss Yardley and his struggle with a marriage gone wrong.

Flashes of humour pepper this police drama based on Leslie Thomas's series of novels. Nicknamed "Dangerous" because of his rather plodding and straightforward style, Davies none the less uncovers the solution to the crime through astute detective work.

  • Much underrated programme,most people I ask have never heard of it, what a shame.

    9.0
    This is a great programme, always had me fully immersed in its parallel plots. Whilst the bearing the brunt of ridicule from his inept colleagues, and lack of interest from his drink ridden inspector, Dangerous the poor downtrodden detective was never swayed by the obvious. Always cracked the case despite all the diversions; that plagued him most all of the time. The casting is inspired and the acting seems completely credible. In my view this is an unsung classic, that should of been worthy of much more credit, more so than some of the drivel that is handed out these days. Always enjoyable to watch, for me it never disappointed.moreless
