By Stephanie De Pue TOP 1000 REVIEWER
"The Last Detective: The Complete Collection," comprising all 17 episodes of this superior British television mystery series, as released by Acorn, is an American release. It has been available in the United States for some time, although it has never been seen on broadcast television there. The series, a subversive police procedural, was made by Granada for the United Kingdom's Independent Television (ITV). It made its debut on British broadcast television in February 2003. It is an excellent, character-driven production that offers a light-hearted blend of mystery and comedy similar to that of Blue Murder - Complete Series 1-5 [DVD]; orRosemary and Thyme Complete Series [DVD]. The collection comes at a value-packed price, and offers as a bonus, the 1981 treatment, starring Bernard Cribbins, that tells the same story as this series' pilot.

It's based on the "Dangerous Davies" novels of Leslie Thomas. The veteran, highly thought of, everyman looking Peter Davison (Tristan in All Creatures Great and Small - Complete [DVD]), stars as the title character, Detective Constable Davies (and we know it's quite a disgrace for an older man to be only a constable!) He works in the usually unimportant, out of the way, North London precinct of Willesden. And he's only the last detective in that he's the last detective his boss would assign to any case, had he his choice in the matter. So Davies gets the least promising cases: yet, in his plodding fashion, he generally does get his man - or woman, as the case may be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Series 2 May 2013
By mevae
I watched this first when I borrowed it from our public library. My husband and I loved it, and bought our own copy. We have watched it three times, and enjoyed it as much each time. We gravitate towards it after watching other much grittier detective series. These new series are getting darker all the time, so it is a breath of fresh air to sit back and watch The Last Detective....again! It has everything -- interesting characters, humor, a detective who is smart and so lovable. The cases are not as light as one would expect considering the humorous aspect, and they are well written so keep you keen until the end of each episode. We highly recommend it!!
