In Brighton, Frank Marker (Alfred Burke) is briefly allied to Joe Rylands' (Stanley Meadows') team of inquiry agents. See more »
At the start of the second season, Marker moves into new premises in Birmingham which overlook Kane's Timber Yard. Despite the busy sound effects added by the production team to convey the atmosphere of a hectic workplace, the view from his office window regularly depicts the same selection of long-untouched wooden planks, since the scene is a stationary backdrop. By the following series Kane's have been taken over and presumably demolished, as a view of tower blocks has replaced the yard. See more »
Watching this for the first time on talking pictures from series 4 onwards,and it's bonkers amazing,nothing really happens, marker spends a lot of time walking around and making tea, yet it retains your interest and doesn't drag weather it's the writing or acting that pulls this off who knows but probably the 1st show I've enjoyed with no real high points
