Trivia

The series was cancelled because Jack Shepherd refused to continue in the title role when the producers sacked Jimmy Yuill (Det. Insp. Doug Kersey) "for insurance reasons" after he contracted life-threatening meningitis during filming, and then would not reinstate him even though he made a full recovery. Cast and crew felt betrayed and embittered by the production company's heavy-handed attitude. The character of Doug Kersey was written out of the last two episodes of what became the final series.

"Wycliffe" is a windswept and rain-sodden Police drama. It is set in Cornwall, the most westerly county in England. Standard dress for plain-clothes detectives appears to be a scruffy grey polo-neck sweater and waterproofs.

The series centres around Detective-Superintendent Wycliffe, whose family life occasionally intrudes into the plots, and two subordinates: a woman Detective Inspector who has been pushed too fast into a senior rank, and a disillusioned male colleague.

Even looking piratical, the Police appear to be intruders into a comparatively isolated community. Some of the office politics which occasionally feature, deal with Wycliffe's aversion to the latest fashionable management trends from London being foisted onto his force.

"Wycliffe" is well worth watching the series for the scenery alone, and hearing the slow local accents.
