    All the old "Life on Mars" style shows had gone out of fashion by 1979. "The Sweeney" ended in 1978 and there was a BBC show called "Target", with Patrick Mower, which ran from 1977-78 and Private Detective shows like "Hazell", in 1978-79 - but none of these carried over into the 80s.

    Some British 1980s shows were,

    Juliet Bravo - 1980-1985;

    The Bill - started 1984, unbelievably;

    Shoestring - 1979-1980;

    The Chinese Detective - 1981-1982;

    Bergerac - 1981-1991

    Taggart - 1983 onwards;

    Inspector Morse - 1987-2000;

    Ruth Rendell Mysteries (Wexford) - 1987-2000;

    Cribb - 1980-1981

    Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) - 1984-1995;

    Miss Marple (Joan Hickson) - 1984-1992;

    Lord Peter Wimsey - 1987;

    Campion - 1989;

    Poirot - 1989 onwards.

    Arguably the best US show would be

    Hill Street Blues - 1981-1987.

    they are truly that dumb. law enforcement officers isn't a scripted teach. digicam and sound human beings holiday with officers on duty and checklist what occurs. many human beings seem to have the belief in the event that they might combat and the two beat the law enforcement officers or get away, then there will be no rates. What truly occurs is the two resisting arrest or fleeing and eluding
