We really are bang up-to-date by including this series!

Yup ! By the way, where is this series taking place ? I see the present day Police Rover 75s have Birmingham plates, but the Audi 80 is from Exeter and the Cavalier from Manchester.

You're 'unknown' episode 02 - in between the main character and the policewomen is an Imp. Likely to be a Sunbeam Imp Stiletto rather than a Hillman Imp as it looks from this angle like a fastback. Just one other question - the Ford Zephyr police car in ep 01 - would they have still been used in 1973? Or is it a way of paying homage to 'Z Cars' as well as the 'Sweeney'? If so cool, if not - oh well, I always loved the Zephyr anyway!!

Set in Manchester, shot reportedly in Manchester and Stockport.
The Zephyr's a G-reg, so not that old in 1973, but I have my doubts about it being correct for the 1970s. They're working with a pool of restored cars, so I guess they're making use of what they can get - look at the other police cars, a Viva and an Allegro (so far). And it's great to see a Sweeney-type Cortina and a Z-Cars-type Zephyr together.

Yes, now I've checked it out, you're right - I'd forgotten about the later Zephyr. However, I read the registration as RVP154G:

Done - some of the ratings may change as the series progresses. Most of the vehicles are only seen fleetingly, but it's wonderful to try and spot them!

Star rating for series is somewhat difficult: in some cases the rating is for an episode only, in other cases it is for the whole series.

The second series has begun.

This is my tally so far is below. The mysterious BMC Luton van (in brown) makes a reappearance, does no-one know what this is? I've scoured rally photos without success. "Redline" only refers to its BMC/Austin/Morris origins, it doesn't define the model. (J2? LD?)

***Triumph 2000 Mk 2
*Hillman Hunter (Arrow series)
*Vauxhall Viva HB GT
*Austin / Morris J4 Van
***Triumph GT6

LonM 2:2

***Austin Allegro Panda
***Ford Transit (Petrol)
*Ford Transit
*Rover P6
*Saab 96 V4
*Leyland 90 Mk2 2-tonner.
**Jaguar XJ6 Mk2
**BMC J4 van
*Ford Transit police crewbus (petrol)
*Austin/Morris/BMC Luton brown van.

LonM2:3

**Ford Transit police crewbus (petrol)
*MGB roadster
***Hillman Avenger Estate
*Ambulance, unidentified (probably Bedford CF)
*Range Rover Mk1
*Commer Truck
*Crane truck?
*Morris Marina

I was wondering, is there a continuity error in that the Avenger that blows up is the same as the stakeout car in the previous series?

Donington wrote I was wondering, is there a continuity error..

It is the same model with same wheel trims, it has the same plate (for filming maybe), but the colours are different. Take a look at the Hillman images entry: one green <> one blue. I put an entry in to mention the colour difference, but looking again, no other grab colours have changed so dramatically... But the continuity would be correct, no?

I'd rather thought that was a TR6 in LonM 2:4. That looks like a Capri in the background. The Elan is on the right.

No volunteers on the Brown BMC van? It's been repainted pale blue and turned up in Heartbeat last month (06/07)

... I would also like to see more of the 'Leyland Redline'. The Austin/Morris/BMC luton brown van (episodes 2.02 and 2.03?). Has anyone access to the remainder of this series?

I can only add vehicles from the last episode, as it was repeated after the first showing of the sequel 'Ashes to Ashes'.
