This has got to be my most favourite TV programme and it is called "Law and Order Special Victims Unit".
The first series started in 1999 and every episode opens with the following words:
"In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories".
It is about the New York Police Department detectives who investigate sex crimes and the court cases involved in these crimes.
There have been 18 series so far and Series 19 starts in the UK on the Hallmark Channel 137 and 138 on Sunday 19 February 2017.
I am just going to mention a few of the cast here as there are so many:
Mariska Hargitay who plays Detective Olivia Benson (She has been in the cast since the beginning in 1999)
Christopher Meloni who played Detective Elliot Stabler (Was in the show from the beginning but left the show in 2011)
Ice T who plays Odafin Tutola (he joined the cast in 2000)
Dann Florek who played Captain Donald Cragen from 1999 - 2015
Richard Belzer who played Detective John Munch from 1999 - 2016
Stephanie March who played Alexandra Cabot a lawyer from 2000 - 2012
Tamara Tunie who played Dr Melinda Warner from 2000 - 2015
I have seen most of the shows (and series) but I have missed watching some of them. Olivia and Elliot were partners in quite a lot of the shows that I have seen but they belong to a team of detectives who all work together.
