What do you have when you mix a restaurant owner and a Detective Inspector? You get Detective Inspector Henry Crabbe, played by Richard Griffiths, a semi-retired but he is more interested in cooking than investigating in the crime world. Pie In The Sky Series 4 guests stars Keeley Hawes and Jane Wymark.

Although his heart is with the dream restaurant that he owns called The Pie In The Sky, he still spends some of his time catching the bad guys that break the laws. His wish is to finally retire from the law enforcement to be able to serve up his favorite dishes full time along with his wife, Margaret, played by Maggie Steed, who happens to be his accountant as well.

The problem with this plan is that Crabbe’s boss, Assistant Chief Constable Freddy Fisher, played by Malcolm Sinclair, has other plans for him. He seems determined to keep Crabbe on the payroll because he doesn’t want to lose his best detective. He needs him to take the case4s that he knows only Crabbe would be able to solve.
