Further details

After narrowly escaping a bomb scare, Dr Parfit reasons Major's hardware would be better if not attached to a human at all. Introducing BRIAN (Brain Representation In Artificial Networks): he's cute, fun, gives great pilates classes, sounds an awful lot like Richard Ayoade and is programmed to maximise arrests in the Greater London area.

Not liking the competition, Major challenges his new rival to a test to see who can crack the most cases, thus proving who the real AI daddy is. Speaking of daddies, Clifford Major is continuing to throw wrenches into the Chelsea Bridge case, but Kelly might be on to him.
