More about Crime Traveller

Meet the most unconventional investigative team of all time, in the BBC mystery adventure series, Crime Traveller.


Written by award-winning author Anthony Horowitz, creator of the brilliant Alex Rider adventures, Foyle’s War, Rosemary and Thyme and Midsomer Murders, Crime Traveller stars Michael French (Eastenders, Holby City) and Red Dwarf’s Chloe Annett (Casualty, Doctors) as sleuths Jeff Slade and Holly Turner.


Detective duos come and go, working on intuition, clues and good luck, but Slade and his beautiful colleague Holly are armed with something very special in the ongoing fight against crime – their very own time machine. Invented by Holly’s father, Professor Frederick Turner, the time machine may be a bizarre mixture of D.I.Y. technology, but it works, just, sending the charming, maverick detective Slade on a dangerous rollercoaster ride through both the present and the past. Intriguing complex puzzles are solved with the aid of their unreliable collection of nuts and bolts and flashing lights, but they must always obey the rules of quantum physics, or risk being lost forever…


Aided by a superb cast that includes Waking The Dead’s Sue Johnston, and directed by Brian Farnham (Rosemary and Thyme, Poirot, Heartbeat, Bergerac) Crime Traveller is a stylish, fast-paced drama that was shown on prime time BBC television during the late 1990’s, gathering a strong and loyal cult following hooked on the mysteries of time travel and crime fighting, and paving the way for dramas such as the BBC’s acclaimed series, Life On Mars.


This DVD Box Set includes an exclusive interview with writer and creator Anthony Horowitz, the man behind the newest big screen hero; Alex Rider.
