43 x 60 minute episodes

This Crawford cop show screened on Australia’s Channel Ten and featured the cases of the Special Squad – a crack team of coppers with specialist skills, involved in the fight against major crime.

The boss of the squad was the no-nonsense Detective Inspector Don Anderson (Alan Cassell), while his team comprised Greg Smith (Anthony Hawkins) and Joel Davis (John Diedrich).

The series was big on gadgets but low on personality, and didn’t last long.
