Shown at Saturday tea time,this series was centred around a village policeman and the drama that his every day duties brought him into contact with.a sort of forerunner to "heartbeat",it was also set in Yorkshire.
| The "Heartbeart" of its time - OK in small doses.
"Parkin's Patch" is a bit like the "Heartbeart" of its day. This is OK in small doses and it was the right move in making the episodes 25 minutes each. The crimes that occur in this series are usually less serious ones. There is a fair bit of location shooting which helps. Look out for Michael Robbins (a.k.a Arthur from "On the Buses") who appears in a few episodes. I have the series on DVD but I seldom see it.
