    Series three of this outstanding police procedural drama sees the role of Chief Constable passing from John Stafford (played by Tim Pigott-Smith) to former Metropolitan Deputy Assistant Commissioner Alan Cade (Martin Shaw - The Professionals Judge John Deed). This release contains all six episodes originally transmitted in 1993. As John Stafford takes up a new position with Europol Alan Cade replaces him as Chief Constable at Eastland East Anglia; Anne Stewart continues as Cade's deputy. While Cade is every bit as capable as his predecessor he finds that the challenge of frontline policing continues to be eclipsed by the pressure to manage ever-tighter budgets and justify expenditure. Sharing Stafford's tolerant but scrupulous approach he also faces ongoing conflict with his superiors and certain local politicians whose cavalier attitudes towards issues of civil liberties contrast sharply with his own.
