The terrifying character of Detective-Sergeant Pierce is clearly based on a real person, Detective-Sergeant Harold Challenor, a decorated war hero who joined the police in 1951 and was soon very well-known in London for his fierce devotion to law enforcement and his phenomenal arrest-rate. He was often accused of planting evidence or of beating up suspects, but as his accusers were usually known to be figures on the fringes of the underworld (or worse), these charges were ignored or dismissed until 1963, when he arrested a man on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon (a half-brick) during a demonstration. The man was a prominent member of the National Council for Civil Liberties and he protested his arrest in the strongest terms; an investigation eventually revealed that Challenor had indeed planted the evidence, and there was a considerable scandal. A report into the case was generally dismissed as a whitewash, with Challenor found to be suffering from mental illness. He was dismissed from the police force and died in his late eighties in 2008.
