Excellent use of time travel taking a couple of feckless, dodgy detectives on a romp through time, space, and public decency!

Craig's main hobby is working full time. When Craig isn't sat behind a desk staring at a computer screen he likes to spend his time sat on a sofa staring at a completely differen
