Robert Lindsay stars as Chief Inspector Michael Jericho, a Scotland Yard detective who regularly makes headlines and is respected and admired by his colleagues and the public alike. Driven, clever and determined, Jericho has risen rapidly through the ranks and is now in the front-line of the battle against crime in 1950s London. Jericho is set in a turbulent time of glamour, intrigue and huge social upheaval, as an explosion of colour and changing attitudes replaces the drabness and austerity of the war years. Backed by his hard-working team, Jericho investigates a series of high-profile murders, including a serial killer who targets courting couples, the kidnap and murder of a wealthy man leading a double life, the assassination of an H-bomb scientist and the brutal killing of a world-famous athlete and his new bride. Alongside his professional murder investigations, Jericho is on a personal mission to uncover the truth about his father's death and clear his name, a quest that puts him in grave danger as he threatens to expose the corruption festering at the heart of Scotland Yard.
