Sergeant Cribb

1979 NR

Peter Lovesey's mysteries are the basis for this engrossing series about Sgt. Cribb (Alan Dobie) of the newly formed Criminal Investigation Department, which is tasked with ferreting out the most vicious criminals plaguing the streets of Victorian-era London. Whether he's guarding an elephant, investigating a royal nanny or exposing Irish bombers, the shrewd Cribb always closes the case with the help of his loyal constable (William Simons).
