Trivia

Episode Juliet Bravo: Chasing the Dragon (1985) was widely criticised by the media and politicians after it was first shown in 1985. The story centres around a schoolgirl who had become a heroin addict. It was felt that too much detail was shown of the ways in which heroin can be administered and that this might encourage school children to copy what they had seen. See more »

Solid Police series
8 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

This series was THE Police drama of the early eighties and in many ways managed to be groundbreaking and traditional. It relied on the tried and tested format of studio interiors and location film but also addressed in its time a number of emerging crime issues. The big issue initially was the fact that the Insp was female and yet due to excellent performances from both leading women it was their professional ability that shone through. It did pull some punches and was the first primetime Saturday night series that I recall that dealt with the effects of heroin that was rampant in Britain at the time. Dodgy as it seems my fondest memory is of Anne Cateret stood in her tights ironing her Police skirt. Many a male fan would agree!
