never-ending, high-tech war against crime, Detective Constables Bob
Louis and David Briggs are the Scud missiles of the police arsenal -
inefficient, unreliable, and utterly aimless. Accidentally promoted far
beyond their level of competence, the Detectives rely on a unique blend
of intuition, hunches and inspired guesses... all of them hopelessly
These series are great! Jasper Carrot is so funny and Robert Powell shows
that he can also amaze us with comedies. These cops are so stupid! but
fortunately for them, there will always be someone to solve the case at their
place. The character played by Robert is in fact the most incompetent
of them (but he doesn't know that) while he takes the other for an
idiot (when in fact he isn't so). Such a pity that this tv show isn't
available outside England!
I don't have favorite scenes, the first and second seasons were the best! The
last weren't that good. Though they are always funny.
You see, The detectives is not the fine British humour we are all used
to, but it's still very funny because they are so stupid!
