Storyline

Tales of Scotland Yard centering on a detective team. A sort of half-way house between Dixon of Dock Green and 'Z' Cars. The detectives are still 1950s style with good elecution and authoritative manner. A range of classic cases but gritty it isn't. Each case centres on one crime and one criminal. Written by nickjg
