Cynical, dour and world-weary, private eye Frank Marker is frequently the unwitting stooge in bigger criminal wheels in his attempts to make a tenuous living on the outskirts of London.
Even though it was written into the scripts that Frank Marker didn't get along with the police and vice versa, occasionally this particular status quo was altered slightly. During the episodes when Frank was based in Windsor, he and a police officer named D.I Firbanks managed to tolerate each other quite well and had a mutual respect.
The Golden Flower Chinese restaurant is visible through the window of Frank's Eton High Street office - but as seen in location work for editions such as "Come Into the Garden, Rose", the eaterie is actually found two doors down from Marker's premises. The Thames production team designed the studio backdrop like this as they felt what actually faced the office was visually uninteresting.
