A fun start for the unusual crime solving duo.

Zodiac kicks off with this, The Crab, which sees the unlikely pairing of a Policeman David Gradley, and palimist Esther Jones.

Who killed the man in the bath? It's a light-hearted mystery, which sadly doesn't give you a huge amount of suspects, so it's quite an easy one to work out. That doesn't matter, as it's thoroughly entertaining, gives an insight into what life was like in 1974 for someone very wealthy, and of course the glorious pairing of Rodgers, and the fabulous Anouska Hempel make it worthwhile.

A shame only one series was made, this first episode is very enjoyable indeed. 8/10
