Given all their experience with solving cases (sort of), that mysteriously fall into their laps, the duo are confident that it won't be long before they get the chance to put their skills to the test. Sadly, the cases don't come rolling in and the duo find themselves moving in with Gemma's sister Monica and praying business picks up soon.
The series also welcomes Gemma Wardle, Ken Collard, Abdul Salis, Paul David, James Lance, Niall Ramsome, George Fouracres, Phil Cornwell, Richard David-Caine, Olivia Nakintu and Ethan Lawrence.
