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. Guest stars included Fulton Mackay, Ralph Bates, Dinsdale Landen and Barbara Leigh-Hunt.
