Trivia

New Scotland Yard had moved from its old premises on the Thames Embankment earlier in the year (1967) and at the time of production there was no file footage available of the new building at St James Park. For the exterior shots of New Scotland Yard, an empty office block in Colliers Wood, south London was used with a dummy sign in front which, unlike the real sign, did not rotate. See more »

Not bad rather than good
17 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I think the judge sums it up, because of PC Strange's behaviour, all other police will have to work ten times harder to compensate.

True words, but alas the film tends to trivialise the events leading up to P C Strange's planting of evidence on "known" criminals. We see him being dragged into trouble by way of jail bait Susan George, who gets her kit off in a pretty unerotic way during the film.

Nowadays the main crime would not have been the planting of evidence so much as the statutory rape.

A better motivation for planting evidence would be the sheer frustration of seeing career criminals getting away with crime time and again. It would be more interesting than the plot actually used in this film.
