As a lifelong fan of more "eye candy" type police series (ie The Professionals, The Sweeney etc) I was sceptical upon viewing this series' first episode when it was initially aired. How wrong I was. The performances of the leads are gripping from the outset and the chemistry between the actors is obvious. The angle that the series takes, ie policing the police, is a unique one which has never come close to being dissected in any series since. After a few "one-off" stories, the series takes on an umbrella theme, which is unmissable until the closing titles of the final episode. As far as the actual DVD quality goes, well, the sound was a little muted to these ears, but don't let that put you off! A must for any fans of police shows.
