Jim Bergerac (John Nettles) is a recovering alcoholic, divorcee, father of a young daughter - and a Detective Sergeant with the Bureau des Etrangers, Jersey. Jim is a true maverick who likes doing things his own way - and consequently doesn't always carry out his investigations the way his boss would like. In this series, a three years sober Jim hits the bottle after failing to get a conviction against a suspected arsonist. Plunged into personal and professional crisis, he finds himself increasingly isolated, leading to a partial reconciliation with his estranged wife Deborah (Deborah Grant), while Charlie Hungerford (Terence Alexander) offers his words of wisdom.
