Product description

Product Description

All six episodes from the first series of the BBC comedy, starring Jasper Carrot and Robert Powell as the bumbling duo, promoted well beyond their crime fighting talents. In this series, Briggs (Powell) and Louis (Carrot) have to catch an escaped killer on the same day as the FA Cup Final, and are assigned roles as expert consultants to a new police TV drama. Episodes are: 'What the Butler Saw'; 'Hostage'; 'Teed Off'; 'Acting Constables'; 'Studs'; and 'Strangers in Paradise'.

Synopsis

In the never-ending high-tech war against crime, Detective Constables Bob Louis (Jasper Carrott) and David Briggs (Robert Powell) are the Scud missiles of the Police arsenal - inefficient, unreliable and utterly aimless. Accidentally promoted far beyond their level of competence, The Detectives rely on a unique blend of intuition, hunches and inspired guesses... all of them hopelessly wrong! Contains the episodes: "What The Butler Saw", "Hostage", "Teed Off", "Acting Constables", "Studs" and "Strangers In Paradise".
