Lazarus and Dingwall (DVD)
Law and disorder
A stuntman has been murdered. A supermodel has been painted to death. A shipment of cocaine has turned up inside a batch of Colombian cod. Only one team can solve such evil crimes: its time to call the Really Serious Crimes Squad!
Well honed chemistryevery episode bristles with sharp, irreverent dialogue? , Curious British Telly
The Oblivion Boys Mark Arden and Stephen Frost (The Young Ones) star as the unconventional murder detectives Steve Lazarus and Mark Dingwall. Together, the troublesome duo solve crimes with their microwave-meal-loving, part-time cinema attendant Police Chief (Peter Bland), the lovely Beverley (Race Davies), the incredibly
boring plain clothes detectives and resident git Gary (Jeremy Gittins).
Other crimes include a bizarre art installation involving a corpse, the mysterious death of a newspaper astrology expert and a spate of murders that seem to be imitating Cluedo scenarios
