More undercover agents at work with an international brief as an elite Scotland Yard unit infiltrates the British underworld. Ghost Squad was based on the memoirs of real-life Scotland Yard undercover detective, John Gosling.
Shakespearean actor Donald Wolfit starred as the boss, Sir Andrew Wilson, and American Michael Quinn was Nick Craig. Australian Ray Barrett played the quietly lethal agent, Peter Clarke (pictured below right).
Other characters included strong-armed Tony Miller (Neil Hallett) and typist-turned-detective Jean Carter (Claire Nielson).
For the latter part of its run, the series was transmitted as GS5.
