Full description New Scotland Yard was a police drama series produced by London Weekend Television (LWT) of the ITV network between 1972 and 1974. It featured the activities of two officers from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) in the Metropolitan Police force headquarters at New Scotland Yard, as they dealt with the assorted villains of the day. The first three series ran from 1972 to 1973 and starred John Woodvine as Det. Chief Supt. Kingdom and John Carlisle as Det. Sgt. Ward. But the series, scheduled on a Saturday night, failed to match the ratings of its more glamorous midweek sister programme, Special Branch. The programme was resurrected for a fourth series in 1974, with an all-new cast headed by Michael Turner as Det. Chief Supt. Clay and Clive Francis as Det. Sgt. Dexter. LWT were considered to have broken the rules of Saturday night broadcasting by showing a tough police drama in place of entertainment. The show is little remembered today but it was an inspiration for The Sweeney.
