A spoof of dark, overwrought crime shows, written by Charlie Brooker for Sky1. The first two-parter was broadcast in August 2012, but more were ordered even before transmission.

Detective Inspector Jack Cloth (John Hannah) and DC Anne Oldman (Suranne Jones) investigate a series of grisly murders in the City of Town.

This work contains examples of the following, which it generally spoofs mercilessly:
