The Last Detective is a police drama with a slant towards the self relevatory in D.C. "Dangerous" Davies (Peter Davison), a detective on the streets of Willesden with heart and some self doubts, and his interactions with his "sidekick", Mod (Sean Hughes), his tough boss Yardley (David Troughton) and his struggle with a marriage gone wrong. Flashes of humor pepper this police drama based on Leslie Thomas' series of novels. Nicknamed "Dangerous" because of his rather plodding and straight forward style, Davies none the less uncovers the solution to the crime through astute detective work. The focus being a bit more on what is happening in his "Dangerous" life as he does proceeds with his job to the end.

Dangerous Davies investigates the death of Geoff Fallon, a stock car driver who was killed during a race at the local stadium when his car exploded due to a leaky fuel line. There seemed to be a considerable animosity with his brother, also a stock car driver, but it turns that Fallon was convicted of killing a child with his car some years previously and the dead child's older brother was working at the stadium on the night in question. When a second person is killed, Davies determines that the case is far more complex than originally thought. Meanwhile, all of the officers at the local station are under investigation when information is leaked to the press.
