Psychic Detective is a gripping British drama series based on the true story of Britain's only psychic detective, Jackie Hyams. The show follows the story of Jackie (played by Donna Stewart), a talented psychic who uses her unique abilities to help the police solve crimes.

As the only psychic detective in Britain, Jackie is a unusual but invaluable asset to the police force. Aided by her spiritual guide, a 17th-century sorceress, Jackie is able to see into the past, present, and future of the people involved in crimes, often providing crucial evidence to help solve cases.

Throughout the series, Jackie is a calming presence for the police, working alongside them to solve a range of crimes, from murders to missing person cases. Though she may appear a little unconventional to those unfamiliar with her work, Jackie's talent as a psychic detective is undeniable.

Supporting Jackie in her work are DI Dave Price (Simon Danaher) and DS John Harker (Joe McGann), who are at first sceptical of her abilities but soon develop an appreciation for her talent. Despite their differing beliefs, the trio work seamlessly together to solve cases, using all available resources to bring suspects to justice.

The show is notable for its sensitive portrayal of Jackie's abilities, with the writers avoiding the temptation to sensationalise her work as many other shows may have done. Instead, the focus is on the necessary collaboration between police and psychic to solve crimes.

Stewart's portrayal of Jackie is heartfelt and convincing, presenting a complex character who uses her powers to help others. Danaher and McGann also shine in their roles, portraying two very different detectives who are united in their admiration for Jackie and their desire to serve justice.

The series is shot beautifully, with stunning locations throughout London adding to the atmosphere. From claustrophobic interview rooms to expansive outdoor locations, the show's settings work in conjunction with the writing to create a sense of urgency and tension.

With 20 episodes, Psychic Detective is a compelling watch for fans of crime drama, with each episode providing its own unique twist on the genre. The show's use of supernatural elements provides a new perspective on police procedurals, setting it apart from other shows in the genre.

Overall, Psychic Detective is a gripping, thoughtful, and well-crafted drama that will keep viewers on the edge of their seat episode after episode. With strong performances and a unique premise, it is a must-watch for fans of crime and mystery shows.

Psychic Detective is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (6 episodes). The series first aired on December 31, 2004.
