This review is from: New Scotland Yard - The Complete Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I'm not a particular fan the 1970's but I have to say the stories and acting are excellent. An early example of interviewing suspects using the 'good cop, bad cop' approach. John Carlisle is almost sadistic as the aspiring assistant detective to superintendent Kingdom. Where as John Woodvine is just so slick and what you hope every senior policeman would be like. He always seems sympathetic to lives of the criminals he encounters but he still makes sure they get their just deserts! Brilliantly done with many familiar actors either just starting out or near retirement in their careers.
