DCI Banks is a BBC crime drama series based on a book by Peter Robinson. The lead character, Banks, is a gritty, determined homicide detective who teams up with associate, DS Annie Cabbot, to solve brutal murders perpetrated by a serial killer. Banks' prior brief sexual history with Cabbot is a great source of friction between the two. Cabbot is a young, opportunistic DI, who has her sights on advancement. His personal life is also in shambles having been divorced from his wife -- who is remarried and pregnant -- and his estrangement from his children, with whom he barely has a relationship. Although Banks is a good detective, his methods are somewhat unorthodox. Although the tension between Banks and Cabbot is palpable, they continue to inch closer to the identity of the killer. As the bodies continue to pile up, DC Winsome Jackman joins the team. Her contributions give the team the cohesiveness that it needs.
