This Yorkshire Television (ITV) series followed the Triad-busting cases of a group of Royal Hong Kong Police Force detectives, based in the colony’s Yellowthread precinct.

The series never really caught on despite the exotic setting and sometimes lavish production.

A clearly uncomfortable cast (seemingly selected for looks rather than screen gravitas) and throwaway plots did not help.
