Boon was an easy-going, light-hearted U.K. drama about a prematurely-retired firefighter, KEN BOON, who becomes a sort of freelance troubleshooter, and later, an official private eye in the British Midlands.
Ken Boon and Harry Crawford have left their Birmingham base for pastures new in Nottingham
"Walking off Air"

Ken has moved to Nottingham and has set up Boon Investigations, operating out of a small office near the Castle. His first case involves him being employed by Gerry Anscomb, manager of a local radio station, Sherwood Sound. He wants Ken to act as minder for Eddie Cotton, "The Man You Love To Hate", a brash loud-mouthed young DJ who has a habit of turning up for work drunk... or not even turning up at all.
Ken and Eddie go to a snooker club where Eddie gives Ken the slip. He misses his show and gets the sack.
But Ken suspects that Eddie was drugged. Because he is no longer retained by Sherwood Sound, he needs to enlist the help of Laura Marsh, the station's receptionist, to get back into the studios. Laura is not so lucky. She is sacked for letting Ken into the studios after he no longer had reason to be there. Ken offers her a job at Boon Investigations, working as his secretary and personal assistant.
Harry has gone into partnership with a widow, Helen Yeldham, to run Woodcote Park, a hotel and county club in the Nottinghamshire countryside.
