As seen on PBS's Mystery! in the early 1980s, Sergeant Cribb follows the cases of a detective assigned to the new Criminal Investigation Department of Victorian-era Scotland Yard, a place where police corruption and incompetence have long been rampant. Assisted by the plodding Constable Thackeray, Cribb exposes the vile deeds of London's criminals, from the brothels of its fog-bound streets to the royal apartments of Windsor Castle. The 14-episode series was based on the novels of Peter Lovesey; this collection includes the unreleased episodes "Waxwork" (the pilot) and "Abracadaver," neither of which were shown on PBS because of brief female nudity. A woman is blackmailed with compromising photographs; three female students witness a body being dumped into the river while out for a midnight swim; the music hall circuit is suffering because performers are meeting with nasty accidents at an alarming rate; a bride is suspected of killing her former husbands; one of the contestants in the World Pedestrian Championship is murdered; Jumbo the elephant is to be sold to Barnum and Bailey, but some want to keep him from going to America. These are some of the challenges facing the patient and wily detective. Special DVD features include a history of Scotland Yard.

"Working without a gun in age still lacking the tools of forensic medicine, Cribb is a model of patience, painstaking investigation and sly wit. He is as British and Victorian as his bowler hat.... The character achieves a clever blend of workmanlike plodding and commonsensical brilliance.... Cribb is played with perfect stiff-backed charm by Alan Dobie."NYTimes
