DCI Banks (2010)
The star of the show is Stephen Tompkinson, best known to me as the upbeat priest in Ballykissangel. He plays the morose detective from Peter Robinson's murder mystery series, who is preternaturally insightful but somewhat prickly and difficult to get close to. The cases that he and his team solve are often complicated and the untangling of the clues is what Banks is exceptionally good at. This is available streaming on Amazon Instant Video, and if you are a fan of this genre, it is excellent.
