Dr. House – I’m serious. Okay, fine..Dr. House with Sherlock Holmes. (now I’m all hot and bothered)...oh! and the guy (played by yummy Vincent D’Onofrio) from Law & Order: Criminal Intent…

I think Columbo. He was so persistant.

That’s elementary: Sherlock Holmes.

Nancy Drew. . . I read the series as a teen and found it fascinating. . .

@Simone_De_Beauvoir House & Holmes.Sounds like a good idea for a show on home improvements.

@Likeradar Are you thinking purely of the detecting here? Or I’d have said Magnum, mmm, mmm, mm.

Not specifically a detective, but nobody solves the case like he does – Jack Bauer.

@ucme And he likes “Amburgers”!

@Simone De Beauvoir Yes The Case of the Orgasmic Spinster.One of his more daring escapades.

Likeradar's avatar

@faye yeah… um, the detectiving. :) I like him for his mind. (there’s all sorts of private dic jokes here…)

How could I have forgotten my Mark Harmon? Plus he’ll give me booze in his basement if I play my cards right.

Jessica Fletcher for a murder case

tragiclikebowie's avatar

I amend my decision: Sonny Crockett AND Jessica Fletcher.

And Sean and Gus from Psych

filmfann's avatar

House, holmes, Mike Hammer, Mr. Moto, Sam Spade, and that guy in Lie to Me.

dannyc's avatar

Emma Peel. I used to hope she was all over my case.

Jeruba's avatar

For a criminal case, Sherlock Holmes, Nero Wolfe (not without Archie Goodwin), and Jessica Fletcher.

For a medical case, I’d have House directing the investigation, but I want Ben Casey to operate and Dr. Kildare just to stand across the room where I can see him.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I’d probably go with Baretta. When he’s not offing his current wife.

Thomas Lynley

LunaChick's avatar

If I had to pick just one, it would definitely be Detective Robert Goren from Law and Order: Criminal Intent.

ucme's avatar

@filmfann House,Holmes,Hammer & Spade.This home improvement theme seems to have moved on a notch.We’re in the garden now.Genius.

Jeruba's avatar

Follow the clues. That must be where the body is buried.

And beware of the Wolfe.
