I wonder whether the inexcusable omission of this series from the Video and DVD catalogues has anything to do with potentially causing the same sort of disquiet.I do hope not. Controversy is now the stuff of TV drama. No subject is sacred.

The attention to detail as far as 'correct' police procedure is concerned was commendable. This happens rarely today. The poetic licence taken, makes one wonder why police advisers are employed. Actually I believe that it is only to give some insipid police drama some sort credibility.

Whatever, nothing must get in the way of the obligatory love story, sex scene, unbelievably stupid senior police officer and so on.

This magnificent mini-series should be seen as superlative drama, not as some sort of contemporary social comment.
