He is able to the job very well and it suits him. Jimmy's got a certain way about him that all works well with the sort of people he's going after. He is cunning and knows just how people can be. He's good at taking down the con men and frauds that are always trying to screw the insurance companies. His being an ex cop works well as he is not afraid of anything that he may come into contact with during a case. Unfortunately when it comes to his own life well let's just say he's an idiot.
Series two has some interesting cases. For instance, his teenage daughter has become a terror as all teens become. She has become a little rebellious. You might want to say she's become big time rebellious and Jimmy and his ex Sally (Annette Ekblom) have there hands full. In another episode, a local rave burns to the ground and he has to find out why. Another episode has to deal with a kayaking trip that goes very, very wrong. The main problem is in series two as in one Jimmy is unable to separate family from work and his life just becomes one big mess. Series two also stars Jill Baker, Holly Davidson, and John McEnery.
