Storyboard

1983-1989

This highly regarded Thames anthology from the 1980s presented a diverse range of high-quality single dramas that would serve as pilots for possible future series. These included Woodentop, which introduced The Bill’s characters PC Carver and WPC Ackland; Lytton’s Diary, both created by and starring Peter Bowles; and linked screenplays The Traitor and A Question of Commitment, featuring Alec McCowen in the role of master spycatcher Mr Palfrey (later seen in Mr Palfrey of Westminster).
