I watched the first disc of this series last night (from Netflix) and am totally charmed. It is about a detective, played by Richard Griffiths (the Uncle Dursley of Harry Potter fame), who would love to retire from the police and run his own restaurant. Unfortunately for him (and lucky for us) he is not allowed to retire and must handle both jobs.
The mystery's are light for the most part. No gore. More of a real every day life.
