Purkis and Wilburt Flower

Created by James Saunders

The Flower Case was a mini-series broadcast on The CBC Mystery Project, featuring rival private investigators PURKIS and WILBURT FLOWER, who happen to be father and son.

Neither's exactly setting the world on fire (or getting any younger) though, and both have resorted to taking domestic cases. And then their cases overlap...

I never caught this one, so if anyone out there did, I wouldn't mind being filled in.
