This BBC television drama series follows the work of the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad (UCOS). Led by Superintendent Sandra Pullman, it is made up of retired police officers who have been recruited to reinvestigate unsolved crimes. It is the new policing protocols which come into conflict with the 'good old ways' that creates some of the humour of this likeable drama series.
