Having left the police force in disgust, the eccentric and bad-tempered detective George Kitchener Bulman set himself up as a private investigator. This leads him into trouble with the hard men of London's gangland underworld, and the devious men of the secret service. Although its darker qualities persisted, by the end of the series, precious little attempt was being made to take it seriously.Written by
Star Don Henderson reprises his role as the now retired former policeman George Bulman, previously one of the leads of police series 'Strangers' & before that the antagonist of 'The XYY Man' in this spin off detective series. See more »
Gawd I miss this show. Did anyone else ever see it? The characters (especially the lead, Bulman himself played by the brilliant Don Henderson), the plots, the acting were the very best. Bulman was this mercurial Shakespearean personality, complex, explosive, completely unpredictable, always raging, always tragic, always most human. Years & years ago Sam Peckinpah had a short-lived western series on American TV called, I think "The Westerner" starring Brian Keith that was sort of like this. Real jewels amidst the garbage.
