The adventures of the International Space Police Force, led by Nathan Spring. The Star Cops are made up of officers from all over the world, including Aussie Pal Lenzy, Russian Alexander, Japanese Anna, and American David. Despite the premise, the Star Cops didn't do battle with extraterrestrial invaders; instead, they investigated thefts, sabotage, and kidnappings. Written by

The series suffered from a number of problems, including the very different approaches of the two directors assigned to the series, Christopher Baker and Graeme Harper, which led to a noticeable lack of continuity between episodes, and the strained relationship between writer Chris Boucher and producer Evgeny Gridneff. Boucher has said that he did not feel Gridneff consulted him with certain key decisions regarding the series and he never liked Gridneff's choice of the theme song and incidental music, which he considered completely inappropriate. Boucher also disliked the decision by the BBC to make the show entirely on videotape, as he had hoped it would also have a film budget. He was also critical of the BBC's decision to schedule the programme in the summer months at 8:30 in the evening on BBC2, thereby almost guaranteeing a small audience. See more »
Mix the personal with the professional, what you get are mistakes. People are part of the design plan - it's dangerous to forget that.

I remembered this series after seeing The Moody Blues on breakfast TV the other morning. It reminded me of Justin Hayward's haunting theme song for the show ("Like a ripple on the water...")
Great series. Hard Sci Fi, uncompromising and willing to take a risk. Like a previous reviewer said. The stories weren't huge "save the world" epics but they were so well written they didn't need to be. Even the effects were just a little above the Dr Who budget level, but it didn't matter
I hope it'll turn up on TV again some day.
