Lazarus and Dingwall are a somewhat unconventional duo in a more than slightly unconventional police department.

The chief's both eccentric and incompetent, and everyone else in Really Serious Crimes is equally oddball, from desk worker and the object of Dingwall's affections, Beverly Armitage, to the plain clothes duo.

However, despite their somewhat unique approach to police work, the department seems to come up trumps more often than not.
