Cast

Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) Michael ( Mike) Jardine.  Characteristics - Doesn't drink, religous, drives himself far too hard, in the current series has developed Angina.  And almost without fail every girlfriend he has gets murdered, is related to someone who is murdered or commits murderer, or is indeed the murderer themselves <g>.
Detective Inspector Robert  (DI) (Robbie) Ross.  Sails close to the wind.  Once accepted a holiday from a known criminal, rather unwisely.  Has just been under investigation for possible corruption.  Innocent as far as we know.
Detective Sergeant Jackie Reid.  Has similar love life problems to her boss <g>.  Has been devoted to him for years, not that Mike has ever noticed.  Currently she seems very fond of her immediate superior Robbie Ross, although she's involved with the officer who's been investigating Robbie!
Detective Constable Stuart Fraser.  Stuart is gay.  Rather hero worships his boss.  And had the pleasure in the episode 'Angel Eyes' of getting to ride off into the sunset with the gorgeous bi-sexual hunk that both he and Jackie fancied.  To which Jackie said, 'Isn't life a bitch'.
