In an EMMY TV LEGENDS interview Loretta Switt has said "this should have been her next series". She starred in the Tv movie "Cagney and Lacey" which got huge ratings; and CBS wanted to offer her the series. But Alan Alda and Gene Reynolds and Twentieth Century Fox; the folks behind MASH; wouldn't let her out of her contract; so she was stuck with finishing up MASH while Sharon Gless and Meg Foster both played Lacey for the series.

Actor Sidney Clute passed away during the run of the series. In every episode after his death, his name and picture still appeared in the opening credits. That was done by the producers as a tribute to him. See more »
I saw and also happened to follow Cagney and Lacey on German or Finnish TV a few years back. What had me interested was the dynamic of the series and its lead characters, though I don't remember much else than emotions of seeing it.
As for availability, then I don't rule out that it might be shown somewhere in Europe. Since the show is about 20 years old now (as of 2003), few TV channels are likely to put it on their prime time slot. If possible, grab a chance to take a look at it, because I feel that the show was in many ways ahead of its time.
