Boxer and Doberman: The Complete Series 1 and 2


All six episodes of the gloriously gritty comedy crime drama. Taggart meets A Touch of Cloth in this parody police procedural featuring DI Bob Boxer and his sidekick DC Shona Doberman. They're an unlikely couple of cops - he's grizzled, old-school and wears a cardigan; she's young, instinctive and wields a Blackberry. But together they tackle cases so tough, they'd make Frost flinch and Rebus run away....  In Headless in Glasgow, a serial killer is targeting academics - can the duo track down the multiple murderer? The Killings in Kirkibrae sees them probing a link between some gruesome murders in Glasgow and some nasty deaths in an idyllic Highlands village. In The Big Cheese, Boxer falls into the clutches of a sadistic old enemy who exploits one of his deepest childhood terrors. Could a good cop really go bad? And in The Seat of Evil, Boxer and Doberman delve into a celebrity killing spree as the plot thickens like fog on the Clyde.  Murder Is Child's Play finds two rival crime bosses competing for a coveted children's book award. With Glasgow campaigning to win 'European City of Kindness', can our detective duo prevent gang warfare? Finally, in The Black Widow, when Boxer and Doberman are called to investigate the brutal slaying of a popular Scottish actor, they become entangled (as you do) in a web of intrigue - one that gets even stickier when Boxer falls for the victim's seductive widow....  Written by Alastair Jessiman, this sparkling send-up of the dour detective genre stars Finlay Welsh as Bob Boxer and Anita Vettesse as Shona Doberman, with James Bryce as DCI Paton.  WARNING: this recording contains strong language.      Production credits Written by Alastair Jessiman Produced and directed by David Jackson Young BA: Carrie Gibbons Content Assistant: Patricia Hitchcock Studio Managers: Gregor Graham, Mic Calder, Ross Blackmore, Malcolm Torrie and Heather Andrews Starring Finlay Welsh as DI Bob Boxer, Anita Vettesse as DC Shona Doberman and James Bryce as DCI Paton Headless in Glasgow With Ralph Riach and Ann Scott-Jones First broadcast on BBC Radio 7, 23rd March 2009 The Killings in Kirkibrae With Sheila Donald, Carol Ann Crawford and Crawford Logan First broadcast on BBC Radio 7, 24th March 2009 The Big Cheese With Steven McNicoll, Eileen McCallum and Crawford Logan First broadcast on BBC Radio 7, 25th March 2009 The Seat of Evil With Steven McNicoll, Crawford Logan and Monica Gibb First broadcast on BBC Radio 7, 26th March 2009 Murder Is Child's Play Butcher Brawley - James Bryce Rosa Caputo - Ann Scott Jones "The Shadow" - Cameron McNee Joe Macnamarra - Alastair Jessiman First broadcast on BBC Radio 7, 6th December 2010 The Black Widow Marion Swann - Juliet Cadzow Mackenzie Baxter - Sean Scanlan Joe Macnamarra - Alastair Jessiman With James MacPherson First broadcast on BBC Radio 7, 7th December 2010
