This mystery drama series from London Weekend Television featured Dr James Austen (Frederick Jaeger) – a doctor, psychiatrist and criminologist – chasing excitement, stalking danger and always living close to other people’s fears.
Austen was a specialist in those dark parts of the mind where problems unsolved often led to acts of sudden violence.
Sometimes he worked for “the Department” – a shadowy hush-hush government section – and sometimes he was hired by big business or private citizens in their desperate hours.
Basil Henson, Robin Ellis and Petra Davies costarred in different episodes.
