Mayo Episode One (BBC-1 12 Mar 2006, with Margo Stilley)

Mayo aka The Gil Mayo Mysteries

Mayo and his team, including new Detective Sergeant Alex Jones (an old girlfriend of Mayo’s), are called in to investigate a death at the luxury Rossi Clinic (a bit like the Priory, where the well off go to try and wean themselves off drugs). It looks like a straight forward case of suicide but Mayo is convinced there is more to it than that.

A good introductory episode with the opening scenes setting out Mayo’s MO well enough, he likes to recreate the crime scene in miniature using models and the team get around in a Wistern Valley pantechnicon. We also get introduced to Mayo’s home life, a single parent with a teenage daughter as well as his fetish for buying things off ebay.
