Storyline

Tales of Scotland Yard centering on a detective team. A sort of half-way house between Dixon of Dock Green and 'Z' Cars. The detectives are still 1950s style with good elecution and authoritative manner. A range of classic cases but gritty it isn't. Each case centres on one crime and one criminal. Written by nickjg

Pretty decent but hobbled by budget
20 August 2020 | by g-hbeSee all my reviews

I used to love this show, mainly for the dramatic opening - a police vehicle (a Wolseley I think) speeding around a bend with bells ringing and the authoritative music playing over the credits. Sadly, those episodes seem to have been dumped and the later ones are poor by comparison. The opening is far less impressive and if I'm not mistaken by this time the show was made on tape in a rather cramped studio. Dingy and cheap-looking.
