Ground-breaking 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.
This show was a different kind of Police drama in comparison to previous ones. This series featured more in the way of grittier violence and a lot more location shooting around London's East End. See more »
The 'Gideon's Way' TV series was based on a series of novels by John Creasey. The series was written/published, under the pseudonym of J J Marrick, between 1955 ('Gideon's Day') and 1976 ('Gideon's Drive'). I picked up another Gideon novel at an op shop (thrift shop) which was written and published after after John Creasey's death but was written by someone else using the pseudonym J J Marrick (it was very poor).
As with the 60s TV series, 'The Baron', John Creasey is again strangely not credited here as at least the creator of the characters.
