| Top Notch British Police Drama
I recently got to see this classic, short-lived TV series again for the first time in seven or eight years, and had forgotten how brilliant it really was. Intelligently scripted, convincingly performed by a largely unknown cast, and filmed with a gritty realism that brings to mind the works of great British directors like Ken Loach and Alan Clarke.

Much of the drama came from mundane, everyday situations, and it always avoided over-blowing story lines for dramatic effect. At times, though, it pulled no punches, and had the power to really bring home the harsh realities of modern-day urban life.

Watching this again highlights how far down the pan shows like 'The Bill' have gone over recent years, playing more and more like soap opera trash. I can't remember this show ever being repeated by the BBC and it's never had an official DVD release - with the rubbish that's cluttering up our TV screens lately, it must surely be ripe for rediscovery!
