The scripts were mainly in the Raymond Chandler style, with clever twists and often bleak or ironic finales. The action scenes however could be humorous, like the mud fight in 'Knock for Knock', or violent as with the final confrontation with a stalker in 'Mocking Bird' (tx. 19/10/1980). Memorable guest appearances include a young Toyah Willcox and a powerful performance by Harry H. Corbett in 'Nine Tenths of the Law' (tx. 4/11/1979) in an uncharacteristically dark and threatening role.
Worried about being typecast, Eve opted not to continue after two series, so Banks devised Bergerac (BBC, 1981-1991), using much of the production crew from the earlier series.
