Overview

Detective Constable "Dangerous" Davies (Peter Davison) 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 that aired on ITV in the U.K. between 2003 and 2007. 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). Still, Dangerous manages to make connections that the slicker cops miss and shows that underdogs do have their day. Special features include "Dangerous Davies: The Last Detective," the 1981 movie starring Bernard Cribbins that tells the same story as the series pilot; an interview with Peter Davison; photo galleries; cast filmographies; and more.

This series is the perfect mix of seriousness and humor. The characters are believable and charming, and the story lines are not filled with gratuitous sex and violence. I have nothing but praise for this set and wish there were more.

Peter Davison as Dangerous Davies was excellent as usual. I did not know Sean Hughes who played Mode, he did a very good job. I understand from the interview with Peter Davison that Sean is a stand up comedian and this was his first acting debute. Dangerous Davies was a sensitive man and Peter Davison played the part superbly. I can only rate this as very good. I read another review before purchasing the set, and it stated that it was about people and not all sex and violence, that was on the money and a wonderful change. I am not familiar with the books the series was based on, so can only say the series was very good. The one thing I disliked was all the harassment that was dished out to Dangerous Davies, especially by his alcoholic superintendent, who should have been in a rehab center not trying to play cop and superintendent. Also the series should have had more comedy to make all the harassment more palatable.

If you like Midsomer Murders you should like The Last Detective. Cast is engaging and Peter Davison does a great job as "Dangerous." This series is more about people than crimes.
