Newly promoted Det. Chief Inspector Janine Lewis commands a close-knit police team that probes some of Manchester's most gruesome murders in this English hit. A single mother, Det. Lewis tends four children at home, handling crises that range from head lice to teenage drinking, and throwing herself into every challenge with energy and passion -- even when her personal and professional lives collide. British Comedy Award winner Caroline Quentin
shines in this dramatic role, heading a fine ensemble cast that includes Ian Kelsey
as Det. Lewis's dishy, dedicated partner, Det. Richard Mayne, and David Schofield
as her doubting boss, Det. Chief Superintendent Hackett. With riveting realism and a touch of wry humor, Blue Murder
serves up gritty police procedurals and sensitively explores the struggles of the modern woman, showing Lewis balancing her devotion to family with the demands of her often dangerous profession.
