One of the most iconic crime dramas to have hit British telly, Bergerac takes us to the idyllic island of Jersey ? which, a bit like Morse's Oxfordshire, is rather more dangerous and unpredictable than the real life version. It's a place of devious, self-centred millionaires, mysterious visitors, corrupt officials and glamorous women hiding agendas up their silky sleeves.
And at the centre of it all is DS Jim Bergerac, a divorced recovering alcoholic who investigates the dark enigmas of the island. Also on-hand are his ex-wife Deborah and his gruff, wealthy father-in-law Charlie Hungerford, along with an ever-shifting supporting cast of scoundrels and allies making life very bumpy for the rugged and charismatic Bergerac.
