Short-lived 'Matlock Police' spin-off
'Solo One' was a short-lived (one season) spin-off from the long-running and popular early 70's rural Australian cop drama 'Matlock Police'. In the series Paul Cronin reprised his role as Sen. Const. Gary Hogan from 'Matlock'. The show's signature motif was Cronin's police bike (which would probably have been a Honda 750, if memory serves). I remember enjoying while it was on, as Hogan had grown to be such a memorable character from 'Matlock' - however the show didn't last long before a sea-change came across Crawford Productions, which had produced a succession of cop dramas since 1964. This was one of their last forays into that genre, excepting the groundbreaking 'Cop Shop' (1977). Their next venture, 'The Sullivans', was an entirely different an enormously successful series; a period drama set in the 40's, and Cronin was recruited for the central role of patriarch of the Sullivans clan for the next seven years.

My recollection is that 'Solo One' was a decent show, but good luck finding it anywhere on TV now. Keep your eye on WIN in the early hours of the morning. They're presently repeating two other Crawford cop shows at 3 am.
