Storyline

An all-female detective outfit, the "Eyes Enquiry Agency", is formed as a front for the Home Office's new security operation the Covert Activities Thames Section (or "C.A.T.S." for short). Initially led by ex-Oxford Union President Pru Standfast (Rosalyn Landor), she was followed by experienced ex-cop Maggie Forbes (Jill Gascoine) (who later led the section), computer genius Frederica "Fred" Smith (Leslie Ash), and later Tessa Robinson (Tracy-Louise Ward). Their contact with the Ministry was Nigel Beaumont (Don Warrington). The team dealt with a variety of crime from theft to blackmail, to espionage and terrorism.

This was in a similar vein to series such as The Professionals, and Dempsey & Makepeace, and even had the same writer. Featuring action packed explosive episodes, full of espionage and counter intelligence, it was Girl Power long before Mel B existed. In this series the girls were able to grab a slice of the action from the boys. One little twist, is that it resurrected a character (Maggie Forbes) from a long forgotten Police series called The Gentle Touch. The three main babes played by Rosalyn Landor, Jill Gascoine, and a thin lipped Leslie Ash even had a Cowley/Spikings type boss to answer to: Dourly played by Rising Damp's Don Warrington.

Unfortunately, after the promise of the first series, it dragged on a bit too much. And the babes were replaced more times than Charlie's Angels.
