Handling cases that are too baffling to be solved by normal police routine is all in a day’s work for Department S - a shadowy Interpol department that specialises in the inexplicable and the illogical. Its small core of operatives include flamboyant novelist Jason King (Peter Wyngarde), who uses his overactive imagination and droll wit to help solve the most difficult of cases, Stewart Sullivan (Joel Fabiani), a man of action who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty, and Annabelle Hurst (Rosemary Nicols) as the gorgeous computer expert with an eye for detail.

Department S was another of the jewels in ITC’s crown - created in 1968 by Monty Berman and Dennis Spooner (The Champions), Department S catapulted Peter Wyngarde from local success to global phenomenon. In each episode the team solved the most convoluted and perplexing of cases with charm and humour. Never before released in its entirety in the UK, this box set contains all 28 episodes.
