| Immensely watchable and interesting.
"Softly Softly Task Force" was a spin-off of the series "Softly Softly." The above series ran for several seasons and lasted over 140 episodes. By some miracle and bearing in mind we are talking about the BBC, most of the episodes of "Softly Softly Task Force" actually exist in the archives. Thank goodness for that! This is an immensely entertaining series and it makes a change to have a Police drama set and filmed somewhere other than in London. The characters of Frank Windsor and Stratford Johns are transferred to this fictional town in the North and they make major changes to the Police station. As a result of these changes, the station is running more smoothly. Frank Windsor was in more episodes than the other regular cast members. The writing is pretty good on the whole and we have the usual high acting standards. Once in a while, "Softly Softly Task Force" can be a bit more gritty and hard-edged. I hope all episodes surface on DVD at some stage.
