The popular crime drama stars Nathaniel Parker as Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley. He is known as Tommy and is also the 8th Earl of Asherton. He is partnered with Barbara Havers (Sharon Small), a detective sergeant.

Havers comes from a working-class background and her opinions often clash with those of distinguished Lynley.

Their arguments regarding class and gender interweave with the murder plot they are trying to solve. They often fight but work well together and have a deep respect for each other. Within the Metropolitan Police Force the crime-fighting duo are as well known for locking horns as they are for the crimes they solve.

The series is based on novels by the American author Elizabeth George. All episodes from the first two series and a further two from the third series are based on her books. However, original stories based on her characters are used later in the series.

A number of plots and characters have been changed from George’s original novels.

The popular series was first broadcast on BBC One in March 2001, and six years later the BBC announced it would be making no more episodes.

Inspector Lynley fans campaigned to try and save the series and even sent a petition to the BBC. The programme had a popular following and was broadcast in the United States on PBS from 2002 to 2008.

Actress Lesley Vickerage appeared in the programme as Helen Lynley.

A number of guest actors have also appeared on Inspector Lynley, including Bill Nighy, James McAvoy and Phyllis Logan.
