Storyline

Having left the police force in disgust, the eccentric and bad-tempered detective George Kitchener Bulman (Don Henderson) set himself up as a private investigator in this third appearance of the character (see also "The XYY Man","Strangers"). This leads him into trouble with the hard men of London's gangland underworld, and the devious men of the secret service. Although its darker qualities persisted, by the end of the series, precious little attempt was being made to take it seriously. Written by D.Giddings <darren.giddings@newcastle.ac.uk>

Maybe the best TV series I ever saw...
6 July 2001 | by (the lower depths) – See all my reviews

Gawd I miss this show. Did anyone else ever see it? The characters (especially the lead, Bulman himself played by the brilliant Don Henderson), the plots, the acting were the very best. Bulman was this mercurial Shakespearean personality, complex, explosive, completely unpredictable, always raging, always tragic, always most human. Years & years ago Sam Peckinpah had a short-lived western series on American TV called, I think "The Westerner" starring Brian Keith that was sort of like this. Real jewels amidst the garbage.
