Groundbreaking British police drama series following the exploits of the Special Branch of the Metropolitan Police. An elite group of officers tasked with protecting London from spies, terrorists, and subversives.
I had the good luck to see a number of episodes of this series when it aired on the CBC as a summer replacement when I first moved to Canada. It jumped out at me, as being so superior to any drama series that I had ever seen on American television at the time. The series featured a very slim cast of an elderly doctor, his young partner, the landlady in their house/surgery, and the outsider whose medical condition was the subject of that particular drama. Not unlike "All Creatures Great and Small", with a smaller, interior budget, and more articulate patients. Or, at least, as articulate as rural Scots are likely to be to the North American ear.
