Truly dreadful .....
25 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This TV series was churned out by the BBC in the early eighties. It centered around a female inspector, two sergeants and various constables set in the fictitious northern town of Hartley. Everything about this series was depressing, the story lines, the characters and the general drearyness of the landscape. I had to watch this as a child because my mother was addicted to it but why it went on so long nobody really knows. You only find it now on some of the more obscure satellite stations. For old times sake I did actually view one the other day and yes it was just as grim as it had always been. This series took over from Z Cars as the BBC police series. That wasn't very good either ......
