The character of Jean Darblay, the first woman inspector in a small-town Lancashire police station, was based on the experiences of Wynne Darwin, a real-life woman inspector in the Lancashire force. 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.
