This comedy series from ATV was written by Ray Galton and Johnny Speight and featured the goings-on in a small corrupt metropolitan police station.

Ronald Fraser starred as the constantly spluttering Inspector Spooner but left at the end of the first series.

He was replaced in the role by Donald Churchill (pictured below), with Patricia Hayes joining the cast as ticket-waving traffic warden Mrs Cantaford (pictured below right).
