Victorian detective mysteries, written by David Ashton, based on real-life Edinburgh policeman Inspector James McLevy (Brian Cox).

In 1833 he became Edinburgh’s first detective and handled 2,220 cases during his 30-year career, almost always securing a conviction. His fame was such that the UK Parliament asked for his advice on dealing with criminals and Mary Carpenter, the great social reformer, quoted him in her paper on dealing with convicts.

Brian Cox stars as the Edinburgh detective in the BBC Radio 4 series.

Inspired by the real-life memoirs of a Victorian Inspector in Scotland, James McLevy prowls the dark streets of 1860s Edinburgh bringing criminals to justice, with the assistance of Constable Mulholland.
