Trivia

After the series ended, the public demanded its return and a fourth season was planned by ATV. This did not happen due to the unexpected death of its star Patrick Wymark of a heart attack in 1970, ten months after the third season closed. See more »

British boardroom plots and counter-plots
7 June 2005 | by (Bearwood, England) – See all my reviews

Classy British studio bound TV drama from the 1960's. Although shot on videotape and in monochrome, this series' quality still shines through. Made nearly 15 years before Dallas, this series proved over 3 seasons that wheeler-dealing could be gripping without lapsing into soap opera.

Patrick Wymark, Peter Barkworth and Clifford Evans all shine with the glamour provided by Barbara Murray.

Alfred Burke, prior to taking on the role of "Marker" in Public Eye, is also excellent.

At time of writing, the first series of 13 episodes are available on region 0 (pal) DVD from Network.

The second series is due out in the next few weeks.
