Eagle and Evans was a police procedural drama that aired on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) from 2004 to 2005. The show followed two detectives, Luke Eagle (Martin Henderson) and Christine Evans (Katherine Slattery), as they investigated crimes in a fictional Australian city. The series focused on the duo's working relationship and personal lives as they navigated difficult cases and the pressures of the job.

Luke Eagle was a charismatic detective with a troubled past. He was known for his unorthodox methods and willingness to bend the rules to get results. Despite his flaws, he was a skilled investigator with a reputation for solving difficult cases. Christine Evans was his partner, and the two had a complicated relationship. While they respected each other professionally, there was often tension between them due to their different approaches to policing and personal issues.

The show featured a range of crimes and investigations, including murders, robberies, and kidnappings. Eagle and Evans worked closely with other members of the police force, including their superior officer, Inspector Decker (Sandy Winton), and forensic specialist, Dr. Donna Marquez (Gigi Edgley). The cases often involved high stakes and dangerous situations, and the detectives had to use all their skills to solve the crimes and bring the perpetrators to justice.

In addition to the crime-solving aspect, Eagle and Evans also explored the personal lives of the main characters. Luke Eagle's past, including his troubled childhood and family relationships, was a recurring theme throughout the series. Christine Evans also had personal issues, including a difficult relationship with her mother and struggles with balancing her work and personal life.

The show was praised for its strong performances, particularly from Martin Henderson and Katherine Slattery, who had excellent chemistry as Eagle and Evans. The writing was also commended for its realistic portrayal of police work and the complexities of criminal investigations. The series received several award nominations during its run, including a Logie nomination for Best Drama Series.

Despite its critical acclaim, Eagle and Evans was not renewed after its second season due to low ratings. The show was seen as a victim of stiff competition from other popular Australian dramas at the time, including McLeod's Daughters and Blue Heelers. Nevertheless, the show retains a devoted fanbase and is remembered as a well-crafted and compelling police procedural drama.

Overall, Eagle and Evans was a gripping crime drama that provided a nuanced and realistic portrayal of police work in Australia. With strong performances and well-crafted writing, the show was an engaging and entertaining watch for fans of the genre, and remains a fondly remembered part of Australian television history.

Eagle and Evans is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on August 26, 2004.
