Between the Lines was one of my favourite TV shows, and such a change from Drop the Dead Donkey for Neal Pearson.

I thought the first series was a bit too focused on him bedding various fellow cops (wasn't it nicknamed Between the Sheets by one TV writer?) but it improved in later series. And stopped before it could grow stale, which is always a good thing.

Haven't seen much of Pearson since then though. Doing rep, perhaps?
