Detective Inspector Alan Ward has been demoted to uniformed sergeant in a division. But he soon has other things to occupy his mind, as a murder accusation uncovers a secret in a family's past that ...
"New Scotland Yard" was a successful series in its day. It lasted for 4 seasons altogether but I don't quite understand why the two leading actors were suddenly replaced.

This isn't in the same league of "Sweeney" but is very watchable all the same.
