The Detectives - Series 5 (DVD)
All five episodes from the fifth series of the BBC comedy series expanded from occasional short sketches on Jasper Carrott's 'Canned Carrott' show. Jasper Carrot and Robert Powell star as bumbling duo Detective Constables Bob Louis and David Briggs, promoted well beyond their crime-fighting talents. In the never-ending high-tech war against crime they are the Scud missiles of the police arsenal: inefficient, unreliable and utterly aimless. Episodes are: 'Special Branch', 'Cardiac Arrest', 'the Beast of Hackney Marshes', 'the Curse of the Commanches', 'Best Man', 'Mine's a Large One' and 'Go West Old Man'. Synopsis Accidently promoted far beyond their level of competence, Detectives Louis and Briggs stumble from crime to crime relying on a unique blend of intuition, hunches and inspired guesses...all of them hopelessly wrong. Starring Jasper Carrott and Robert Powell this DVD contains every episode from the fifth series.
