Summary of Season 2 (1981) - 3 discs
The shrewd sleuthing of pokerfaced Sgt. Cribb (played by Alan Dobie) mingles with a wry look at Victorian England's foibles in this atmospheric adaptation of Peter Lovesey's novels. In the second series, Cribb must suffer the indignities meted out by his superiors at Scotland Yard's Criminal Investigation Dept. -- that is, when he can't pass the buck to his assistant. The show's supporting cast includes William Simons and David Waller.
