The Police Woman and Protagonist will become friends and the Protagonist will be welcomed into their family. This family are the opposite of the family the Protagonist grew up in, open, affectionate, stable, share emotions, no secrets.
I have a long list of characters and social issues that are representative of the vibe of the western world at the moment, and I can’ pick them up and put them down as I need them.
As much as I love these shows, when it comes down to it, I feel bad about killing people (as a fiction writer). But kill (fictional) people I must.

Had brunch with a visiting friend today and we came up with a great character to kill off – my first murder! So exciting.
I love the ‘reset’ quality of Midsomer et al. The characters often learn something professional or personal each week that is never seen or heard of again. Last night I saw the ‘new’ Barnaby meditating. Happily that won’t come up again.
Is the protagonist in law enforcement/legal fraternity, or an amateur? Are they established in the community or new to this place? Are they good at solving crimes or bad at it and manage to solve it in spite or themselves, or have a great sidekick?
