'Jericho Of Scotland Yard' DVD Review

DCI Michael Jericho (Robert Lindsay) is a top notch detective for Scotland Yard. He works on some of the more high profiled cases and always seems to have his picture in the tabloids. Set in 1950's London the war is long gone and a vibrant feel has taken over the city. Jericho is aided by his trusted sergeant Clive Harvey (David Troughton) and a young go getter DC John Caldicott (Ciaran McMenamin).

Michael Jericho is a somewhat troubled sort of chap. When he was just a lad he witnessed his father killed and the murder was never solved. This haunts Jericho to this day. His father was a policeman and this had something to do with him becoming a cop as well. Jericho was in love once and it was during the war. While he fought overseas his girl ran off with someone else. Jericho never married and this may have something to do with his callous lifestyle. There is one plus to his off duty antics and it has to do with a young lady in his building. Her name is Juliette (Aurelie Bargeme) but she is a local prostitute. Jericho fancy's her but can't seem to find a way of asking her out. Jericho is excellent at his job but with his dark side mostly dealing with his past it makes you wonder just how long he can carry on with his job. Sergeant Harvey does an excellent job of keeping his friend and boss in line but only time will tell if Jericho can continue as the top notch detective of Scotland Yard.
