Great radio drama/mystery

I'd never heard of this series before I bought it. Was just looking for "radio dramas." These police procedurals work surprisingly well. I thought the plots were more inventive than what you get in TV police dramas and had a nice, fast pace. The characters interact like real human beings, and the actors were excellent. Leave it to the BBC to keep good radio drama alive. This was a great surprise find for me.

Very good!

I could easily visualise the stories being told; they were well written and performed. Wish there were a third series already!
