Dalziel and Pascoe is a popular British television crime drama based on the Dalziel and Pascoe books by Reginald Hill, which was first broadcast in March 1996. It is set in Yorkshire, and is about two detectives. After Recalled to Life (4.2), only one of the subsequent episodes, the two-part Dialogues of the Dead, (7.5) is based directly on an original Hill book (while several of his later Dalziel and Pascoe books were not made into shows). It was produced by BBC Birmingham and screened on BBC One and ran for twelve series.

Plot

The story looks at the cases of two detectives. Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel (play /dˈɛl/) (Warren Clarke) is described by the actor who portrays him as 'a perfect pig', who is politically incorrect and often insensitive. He likes to do things in the old-fashioned way. On the other hand, Dalziel doesn't have an issue with DS Wield being gay. When Wield comes out with the line "I'm a homosexual, a queer, a poof", Dalziel just answers "It's OK I already knew" and the matter is never again discussed between them.

Detective Inspector Peter Pascoe (Colin Buchanan) is his opposite. Pascoe is university educated and becomes divorced from his wife Ellie in series 5, because he cared more for his work than for her. His wife and daughter then moved to the United States.
