Completion List : The Last Detective

This has been a week for finishing up tv shows. The Last Detective isn’t diametrically opposite of Get a Life but it’s pretty close.

The Last Detective stars Peter Davison who I remember best as Tristan from All Creatures Great and Small (I was devastated to learn that this makes me average–Davison says he’s recognized by far more Americans as Tristan than the Doctor).

I haven’t read any of the novels the series is based on but the investigations are more along the lines of Ed McBain than Agatha Christie. That is a nice break from shows like Sherlock that make every mystery alter the fate of the universe.

The show ended after the fourth series on a decent spot for a conclusion but it could have gone on much longer. I would be happy to see an American adaptation even knowing what Hollywood might do to it.
