The Detectives started out as a series of short filler sketches in Canned Carrott,which was a comedy sketch show starring and written by Jasper Carrott,which ran for two seasons in the early 90's.
The sketches led to their own show shortly after.
Dave Briggs (Powell) and Bob Louis (Carrott) are bungling detectives under the command of Superintendant Cottam,constantly under stress from their incompetant antics.
Robert Powell,usually a more classical actor,did a great job as the sarcastic Sgt.Dave Briggs,as did Jasper Carrott,as the even dimmer Sgt Bob Louis.
A great series,which ran for 5 seasons,with 2 Christmas specials
