I am from London so had never seen this brilliant show until 2005, whilst living in Sydney for a year. I was lucky enough to come across this superbly acted, excellently written, warts and all portrayal of inner city police work and drop in centre.

I only wish it was available to watch on DVD as i note the only one available has only 3 episodes.
3 episodes out of 60? Thats just a disgrace.
Come on ABC, get theses sold in a special pack for the fans.
