Great series sadly not continued or on DVD yet
4 November 2004 | by (Nottingham) – See all my reviews

When this was first shown I thought it was great and still do. It was an all action series the likes of which have not been seen since classics like The Professionals. It depicts a team of DPS officers (Diplomatic protection service), a special part of the police force and through the six episodes show some of the cases they worked on and the regular brushes with death by would be assassins. I thought the cast was great particularly Sean Pertwee and Louise Lombard and the scripts very good. I am still disappointed that the series was canned after the first series. I am also disappointed that Carlton haven't made it available on DVD yet. A missed opportunity... come on guys.
