Rose and Maloney is a British television crime drama starring Sarah Lancashire and Phil Davis as Rose Linden and Marion Maloney, two investigators working for the fictional Criminal Justice Review Agency. This agency takes on claims of miscarriages of justice, assessing whether there are grounds to reopen old cases.

Rose is brilliant but strong-willed and sometimes reckless. She likes to follow her instincts and play hunches and often comes into conflict with authority. Maloney, although Rose's superior, usually allows himself to be led by his more passionate colleague. Maloney is a by-the-book man and a little grey. He finds working with Rose dangerous but addictively exciting.

A two-part pilot was first broadcast on ITV on 29 and 30 September 2002. This was followed by a series of three two-part stories (six episodes) in July 2004 and three more episodes in 2005.

Throughout all the series many actors and actresses starred in the programme including Tara Fitzgerald, Danny Dyer, Tiana Benjamin, Andrew-Lee Potts and Neil Dudgeon to name but a few.
