The first season of the BBC1 crime series in which a motley crew of retired police officers – Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman), Jack Halford (James Bolam) and Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong) – is recruited by Superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman) to re-open troublesome cases that were never laid to rest. From the discovery of a new motive in the killing of a college lecturer, to the tracing of a missing child, the team finds a way through the detail that eluded the original officers. But they are finding a surprising incidence of cover-up and conspiracy in their new investigations. Are their superiors about to close ranks? Or is someone feeding them particular files? Either way, the suspicion that they are being manipulated is high – and the team is determined to get to the bottom of it. These old dogs won’t roll over too easily… Episodes comprise: ‘The Chinese Job’, ‘ID Parade’, ‘Painting on Loan’, ‘1984’, ‘Good Work Rewarded’, ‘Home Truths’ and ‘Talking to the Dead’.
