Newly-promoted Inspector Jean Darblay takes charge of the police station in the fictional Lancashire town of Hartley. She is the first woman to be placed in charge of the station and initially there is considerable scepticism from the long-standing staff of Sergeants Joe Beck and George Parrish. After the third series, Jean Darblay left and was replaced by Kate Longton. Written by
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 »
Juliet Bravo reminds me so much of my youth in the early 80's. I watched the series without fail every Saturday night. I did enjoy it more when Stephanie Turner was starring in it, somehow when she left at the end of the third series, the show never seemed the same again. I've recently purchased the Dvds of the show, and it has been a joy to watch all over again. although a couple of the episodes show how dated it is, i find its just enjoyable now as it was then. David Ellison was also good as Sgt Beck, he was very aloof and i don't think he ever got used to a woman in a higher position than him. If people get the chance they should check out the series and they may too find it enjoyable.
