Target

Show Summary

Welcome to the Target guide at TV.com.

Target was an action-packed police drama series based on the operations of the 13th Regional Crime Squad. The squad deals with large scale crimes ranging from drugs and murder to immigrant smuggling. It is led by Detective Superintendent Hackett, its tough and ruthless chief of operations.

Conceived as a riposte to ITV's The Sweeney, the show starred Patrick Mower from Euston Films' Special Branch and was the first BBC police drama series to be made entirely on film. It was much criticised at the time for its excessive violence, which was toned down for the second series, and the show was cancelled to make way for the gentler Shoestring.
