Crime Fiction Heroes in Movies, TV and Novels

We all know and enjoy detective, thriller and spy heroes in novels, movies and on TV: detectives like Vera, Banks, Morse, Lewis, Rebus, Bond, Jason Bourne, Poirot, Miss Marple, the Saint, Phillip Marlowe and hosts of others. But why is this so? What makes them heroic? Is it just that they get the bad guys? Or is it something more? What do they have in common?
Join Ted in taking a closer look at our favourite characters, revealing what makes them tick and why we can't get enough of them. The answer might surprise you - it lies in the deep, deep past, way back at the dawn of Western literature.
