Ghost Squad was based on the memoirs of real-life Scotland Yard undercover detective, John Gosling.

Shakespearean actor Donald Wolfit starred as the boss, and American Michael Quinn was Nick Craig. Australian Ray Barrett played the quietly lethal agent, Peter Clarke.

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.
