A strait-laced British inspector is transferred to St. Marie Island's police department. Unfortunately, he hates the sun, sea, and sand. In later series, an accident-prone officer heads the Caribbean investigative team.
I grew up in the area where Chinese Detective was filmed and remember always straining to see David Yip in action, at that time on the Isle of Dogs there were no 'Yuppies' and Canary Wharf was disused Dockland.
I remember watching on TV some of my school friends who were lucky enough to be in the background playing football or suchlike as extras.
Aside from the nostalgia I remember it being a great show and would love it to be revived on DVD much the same way I would like to see Prospects starring Gary Olsen of 2 Point 4 Children on DVD.
This was another show based around docklands during the initial regeneration of the area by the LDDC a few years later.
