When top female cops was a rariety
22 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

I have just been revisiting this series on the Drama channel, I haven't seen it since the original broadcast. Sure it is dated in production values but the stories were well written and the acting was in most cases top hole. In those days the idea of a female in charge was a new idea. Now days it is the norm where every cop show now has the female as the boss (Midsomer Murders excepted and if that ever changes I will turn off) Not that I am against strong women in charge (I love Vera) just that it is over done now. The worst case being Scott and Bailey where if the women in the series were treated like the men are there would be an uproar!.

I will step off my soapbox now as I digress. JB is a product of the time, I'm still on series one as it is being re-shown. Most of them have been excellent, fab to see some well known faces in early roles. Of course if you compare it to today's productions it looks very amateur in production values but the stories still hold your interest.
