Dalziel and Pascoe (TV series)
Dalziel and Pascoe
is a popular British television crime
drama based on the novels of the same name
, written by Reginald Hill
. The series was first broadcast on 16 March 1996, with Warren Clarke
being cast as Dalziel (pronounced "dee-ell") and Colin Buchanan
being cast as Pascoe. The series is primarily set in the fictional town of Wetherton
, and "follows the work of two detectives that are thrown together as partners. Complete opposites. Different backgrounds, different beliefs, different styles. They get on each other's nerves. They are continually embarrassed by each other. But their differences make them a stunningly brilliant crime-solving team."
The first three series were entirely based on Hill's novels, as were the first two episodes of series four. However, all subsequent stories, with the exception of "Dialogues of the Dead", are stories written exclusively for television, and have not appeared as subsequent novels. The series was produced by BBC Birmingham, and broadcast on BBC One until 22 June 2007, running for a total of eleven series. The series was axed in 2008, citing falling viewing figures as the main reason. It was one of a number of dramas axed in a mass cull by new station controller Peter Fincham.
