Storyline

Don Henderson resurrected the eccentric police detective George Kitchener Bulman (from the short lived series "The XYY Man") in this British series which saw him reluctantly and grumpily transferred to a station in the North of England. Like the series which followed it ("Bulman") the show drifted between the standard hard edged, grittily realistic and violent policy which was prevalent in British police shows in the late 70s, and a peculiarly tongue-in-cheek reluctance to take itself seriously.
