Product Description

This highly regarded crime series stars John Woodvine as Detective Chief Superintendent Kingdom of the Central Office of the CID, and John Carlisle as his colleague DI Ward. An intelligent, authentic portrayal of the complexities of police work in the increasingly violent London of the 1970s, New Scotland Yard benefited from the involvement of ex-Chief Superintendent Frank Williams, former head of the Yard's Murder Squad, who acted as series adviser.

This third series sees the workaholic Kingdom tackling more serious and high-profile cases, including kidnapping, armed robbery and murder; he also faces professional conflict when forced to share an investigation with an old adversary who has his sights set on his job, and personal drama as he and wife Angela reach another crisis in their relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 1970s television! 15 Jan 2014
By Paul
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was 1970s television at its best -- which might not be saying a lot, but the stories are mainly good ad the interplay between the two main characters makes good viewing. However, from today's point of view it looks as if the stories take place in a different world since so much in our daily lives has changed fundamentally since these programmes were made. and here's an idea for a family game: count the number of times a boom mike swoops judt above the heads of one of the actors! Great fun!

This is back to top from for police series that was way ahead of it s time. There are a few stories where production values seem to have gone off the rails. In one story about youth crime Kingdom befriends a boy. Today this kind of story would be avoided. In another, we see Kingdom at loggerheads with another detective and this commander agreeing for a tape claiming he was asking for a bride to be released as evidence. Today this would not happened . The press would have a field day and Kingdom would have
been forced to resigned. How times have changed now we no longer hold policemen and government officials in high moral standard anymore and how we are suspicious of them all, regardless of right or wrong. A wonderful and refreshing look back at what television used to be, and why we loved it so much. Blade
