Britain's Bumbling And Beloved Detective

Detective Constable "Dangerous" Davies always gets the cases no one else wants - and no one notices when he eventually succeeds. But his old-fashioned decency and dogged determination have won him legions of loyal fans. Collected here are all 17 episodes from the hit British mystery series starring Peter Davison (Doctor Who, All Creatures Great and Small), who played the beleaguered Davies "with a pitch-perfect mix of self-effacement and irritation at the endless slights from crooks and fellow cops alike" (The Baltimore Sun).

Mocked by colleagues at his small London police station and estranged from his wife, he actually listens to advice from his kooky chum Mod (Sean Hughes, The Commitments). Still, Dangerous manages to make connections that the slicker cops miss and shows that underdogs do have their day.

Bonus Program:

**Dangerous Davies: The Last Detective~~, the 1981 movie starring Bernard Cribbins that tells the same story as the series pilot.
