Season 11 Repeats
Saturdays: 20h00 (double bill)
The blunt-talking, politically incorrect Andy Dalziel and his younger, fast-tracked side-kick, Peter Pascoe, return for another collection of murder cases.
In the crime drama’s eleventh season, the duo investigate more difficult cases, including that of a woman whose mummified remains emerge from the water during a cave rescue operation.
As their investigation comes under increasing attack, Dalziel and Pascoe find themselves battling harder than ever to learn the truth about a murder that happened over twenty years ago.
The pair also investigate the murder of an up-and-coming jockey at a race-track, and Dalziel and Pascoe find themselves forced to examine the dark underbelly of horse-racing.
They find the rural setting of their latest murder inquiry anything but idyllic, as their search for clues takes them deeper into the murky world of the sport.
