Scotland Yard's Chief Inspector Rose (played by William Mervyn), was first introduced in The Odd Man and It's Dark Outside, Granada's cult crime series of the early '60s, and this sequel sees the acerbic detective taking on a further selection of intriguing cases alongside Donald Webster as his enigmatic manservant, John Halifax; this series also features guest turns from Barbara Shelley, Tenniel Evans and Robert Urquhart. Mr. Rose has now retired from the force to cultivate his cottage garden and concentrate on writing his memoirs. But a number of people have good reason to fear Rose's vast personal collection of case files. A veritable library of crime, it contains a wealth of incriminating detail that villains and former colleagues alike would rather remain unpublished. Time may have mellowed Mr. Rose, but he's as sharp as ever as he deals with their attempts to stop him revealing all...
