worst tv detective

Recommended Posts

my vote always goes to father dowling investigates, he's not even a blooming detective, just an interfering man of the cloth.

poirot, wycliffe and miss marple all pretty crap an all.

and how could i forget diagnosis murder - oi van dyke your a silly old man who is a fucking doctor, surely you'd be better off caring for the sick and let the police get on with solving crimes? (quincy was the same an all)

Fucks sake' date=' nobody slags off Mark Sloan! The man is a legend, Diagnosis Murder is ace. You're right about Quincy though, what a prick he is...[/quote']

Diagnosis Murder is on par with Jessica Fletcher and Murder she Wrote, my god you wouldnt want to be friends with these people, the mortality rate must be huge for their friends.

The UK's always made these things best, i quite liked the older Marple, never got into Poirot though,

Cheers

Stuart

midsomer murders deserves a mention an all, the body count for such a leafy rural part of middle england is rather unrealistic - john nettles is good in it though.

i like father dowling's spunky ginger nun friend' date=' she reminds me of the rather timid ginger nun in sister act - but with greater mystery solving abilities.[/quote']

I love how every time she goes undercover, she's always a hooker/belly dancer/stripper but she always wears a polo neck, cos she's a nun.

LoveJoy was the worst tv detective

As if i rember right wasnt it ALWAYS a middleaged good looking women who had sexual interets in lovejoy that done it every week..If he was any kind of detective he would have known NO-WOMEN would have feel in love with a mulletman who wears a leather jacket...

Dont get me wrong im a fan of the actor just not lovejoy

Isn't there some shite on ITV called Rosmary and Thyme who are middle aged, middle classed house wives who solve crime?

Monk is the king of dectectives. I've solved the case!

I think Rosemary and Thyme were some kind of gardening detectives. Almost as bad as that Pie in the Sky pish that used to be on....

Lovejoy wasnt a detective though, he didnt actually try to solve crimes, most of the stories were abpout him trying to get some cash, not about solving crimes, thats why the police always suspected him of something. Lovejoy was a slightly dubious antiques dealer and forger.

another really appaling one was pie in the sky, richard griffiths playing an ex cop who ran a restaurant but kept getting involved and he solved most crimes wearing his chef's uniform.

Hetty Wainthrop surely.

Although the ever dull BBC variants of Prime Suspect, Messiah, Waking the Dead and Silent Witness and complete toss. Dark, choral music, serious looking investigators. Yawn. Its been done to death. it's as dull a genre in my book as Scottish crime novels.
