  • The first episode of a series that was to run for four series between 1968 and 1973.

    Viewed today in 2009, this looks very artificial recorded as it is on videotape. Most of the episode was recorded on studio sets. But the storyline is similiar to some we see today. The only criticism of the story is that it takes too long to get to the point.



    The show set up the series and laid down a marker that this was going to be a tough drama series. As I've said, 40 years on it looks a bit past it, but at the time I used to watch this show with as much enthusiasm as I was to give to The Sweeney, Minder and The Bill.moreless
