Meet the sassiest, sexiest investigative team in the Middleford Criminal Investigative Department. A graduate of a posh girls’ academy, Detective Inspector Kate "Ash" Ashurst (Caroline Catz) has a sharp, analytical mind. Her working-class partner, Detective Sergeant Emma "Scribbs" Scribbins (Lisa Faulkner), relies on her instincts. This unlikely pair uncovers the dark urges behind Middleford’s placid, picture-perfect facade. "You know what I like about suburbia?" muses Ash to her partner. "The effortless way it all works—deceit, murder, wife-swapping. And still the hedges get trimmed." Back at headquarters, both unmarried women regard their handsome, bemused boss (Jeremy Sheffield, The Wedding Date) with a mixture of fear and infatuation.
Catz (Doc Martin, The Vice) and Faulkner (MI-5, Burn It) sparkle as bickering, bantering crime-solvers. For their hip, ironic humor and unerring radar for middle-class hypocrisy, you’ll cheer Ash and Scribbs as the newest additions to the sisterhood of British sleuths.
