Storyline

DCI Jericho is a brilliant detective and a darling of the media. However, he is haunted by the memories of his father, a policeman whose murder Jericho witnessed as a boy. Never married, and alone since his childhood sweetheart left him for another during WWII, Jericho is obsessed with his work at Scotland Yard. Yet, he finds himself drawn to his beautiful French neighbor Juliette - a prostitute with a tortured past. Set amidst the social upheaval of post-war 1950s London, Jericho unravels headline-grabbing mysteries. His diligent team includes faithful friend and colleague Detective Sergeant Clive Harvey and the ambitious young Detective Constable John Caldicott, whose warm relationship with his fiancÈe starkly contrasts Jericho's lonely nighttime vigils.

Deserved a longer run. It's excellent.
30 December 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

ITV spent a few years seeking a replacement for Inspector Morse. I firmly believe if they'd kept with Jericho it would have developed into something rather special. Only four episodes to judge, and on the whole I'd say the standard was excellent, each story had a unique case, but there were multiple threads which spanned the series, and would have been developed.

Each episode is intriguing, my personal favourite was The Killing of Johnny Swan, such a quality episode. Superb production values, great atmosphere, most notable in the concluding episode.

The acting was fantastic throughout, Lindsay and Troughton were a fantastic duo, and played off eachother particularly well, both great in their respective roles. Shout outs for Brendan Coyle, Peter Bowles, Williams Ash and Jane Horrocks.

Such a shame the series was cut short early. 9/10
