Overview

Beleaguered by life and belittled by his colleagues, "Dangerous" Davies Peter Davison cracks four all-new cases in the detective series that has delighted legions of loyal fans. The four 90-minute mysteries from Series 3 included here originally aired on ITV in the U.K. back in May and June 2005; they find Davies still slogging along in the Willesden Constabulary, with promotion no more than a pipe dream. He's still sharing a flat with Mod Sean Hughes, the oddest of odd ducks. And he's still trying to rekindle a romantic spark with his estranged wife, Julie Emma Amos. On the job, "Dangerous" always gets the cases no one else wants -- and no one notices when he eventually succeeds. Chuckle at the foibles of the screen's most endearingly disrespected detective with four episodes that include "Friends Reunited," "Towpaths of Glory," "Three Steps to Hendon," and "Willesden Confidential." Special features include a biography on the Dangerous Davies series' author, Leslie Thomas, and cast filmographies.
