Totally agree with all the 4- and 5-star reviews. Lovely and hilarious subtlety everywhere throughout this series. The very kind and nice detective - who really detects, apparently unheard of in his precinct - and who gets imposed on hilariously by his friend Mod, subtly hit on by his landlady once his wife kicks him out, abused by his coworkers ("workers" - here meaning ass-kissers)and on and on. Discontinuation of this series was a huge loss to me, the worst in all TV seriesdom. Truly.

This is a great British detective series. "Dangerous" Davies is a nice-guy detective in a not-so-nice world. His younger coworkers pick on him, his boss gives him the worst jobs, and his wife (from whom he is separated) doesn't appreciate him. What no one seems to notice, however, is that he's a fine detective. In between cases he spends time with his quirky friend Mod, and walking his St. Bernard. Gentle humor and a realistic contemporary setting make this series a winner. With only 4 seasons, I was sad to see this series end.

This is one of those BBC sleepers-- it looks like a fairly typical detective series but turns out to be far better than you might expect. Some really nice acting from Peter Davison and Sean Hughes, great character development, and decent stories. It's not quite cosy, not quite gritty. I really enjoyed the whole series.
