This outstanding police procedural drama stars Martin Shaw (George Gently) as Alan Cade, Chief Constable of Eastland, a fictional East Anglian force. Focussing on the politics of policing as much as the daily fight against crime, The Chief sees the compassionate, principled Cade in frequent conflict with both his Home Office superiors and the local government agencies that are increasingly taking over many police roles.
Featuring scripts by Ian Kennedy Martin (The Sweeney), this fifth and final series sees Cade's antagonists closing in. He finds both his job and his reputation on the line when a national newspaper splashes an article criticising his record as Chief Constable, and suggesting that all those around him would like to see him go. Someone closely associated with Cade is responsible for supplying the journalist with details...

I thought the acting was superb, and the direction brilliant, also the script was over powering and the best I have ever seen.
The story was so true of police services around the world, the idiot politicians and bureaucrats at high level who continually try to force their elected supervisory to play their game of corruption and high level complete foul ups at the highest level.
Brilliant is too weak a word for this marvellous show.
Everybody should watch this dvd as it has future implications with so many politicians around the world stuffing up the world.
Another early tv series.
