A spoof of dark, overwrought crime shows, written by Creator/CharlieBrooker for Creator/SkyOne. The first two-parter was broadcast in August 2012, but more were ordered even before transmission. Imagine ''Film/TheNakedGun'' or ''Film/{{Airplane}}'', but instead aimed at dark crime dramas like ''Series/{{Luther}}'' or ''Messiah'' (along with most crime shows on TV) and you are heading very much in the right direction. Very silly and very funny.

* WhoMurderedTheAsshole: Parodied with the first episode's second murder victim, 'sushi despot' Aiden Hawkchurch. This walking turd was '''so''' despised that magazines with him on it had headlines like "Enemymaker" and "Someone kill him already!". Even random radio broadcasters celebrate his death right after the protagonists muse that there must be a million suspects.

* DiscriminateAndSwitch: Cloth asks a black boy on a bike where to find Crossbo, and the boy answers in what appears to be heavily accented, broken English: "Dat dere yute club." Then it turns out that the name of the place he directed Cloth to is ''literally'' "Datdere Yute Club". [[note]] "Opened by Baron Peregrine Datdere-Yute, 2002" [[/note]]
