User Reviews

A classic which builds up the tension
9 May 2004 | by edward_woodcraftSee all my reviews

The series begins explosively with the robbery itself. As it progresses the detective, played by Peter Vaughan probes more deeply into the conspiracy. Each episode represents a different layer, the criminals featured in each episode becoming progressively more seriously involved.

As the detective draws closer to the centre of the crime there is a greater cost to him. The series cleverly used its 13 part format to increase the tension. There were a number of high quality dramas such as this produced in the 1960s on the BBC but also as with the Gold Robbers on commercial television.

Is a record of this series still in existence?
