Storyline

"Between The Lines" is set in the Complaints Investigation Bureau (CIB) - the department responsible for investigating other police officers - of London's Metropolitan Police. The first two series had stories based around various different aspects of the darker side of the police, ranging from such topics as petty corruption, racism and sexual harassment through to grand conspiracy, with some plot threads running through the series over several episodes. The series also dealt with the personal lives of it's less-than-clean-cut characters, particularly the womanising lead character Tony Clark, and is also notable for its inclusion of a lesbian character in a major role. In the third and final series, the focus changed significantly, moving away from the police force to other areas of security and espionage. Written by <mcollins@nyx.net>

One of my favourite programmes ever
2 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first two series were about the work of the Police Complaints Department. The slightly disappointing third series was basically about a team of private eyes who used to work together in the Police. I would have preferred all the characters to have remained in the Police Complaints department because to take them out, just made it into a normal detective programme. All of the regular cast were more than excellent, but my favourite was actually John Deakin, the villain of the piece. My favourite quote was when Deakin spoke to Superintendent Graves in the Toilets and went something like, " Whilst Clarke may considerably p*ss me off, my dislike of him pales into insignificance compared with my permanent and utter contempt for you. Got It ? " Some of the scenes between Harry Naylor and his dying wife Joyce ( Serious Crumpet ! )were very well done.
