Product description:
Inexplicable . . . Illogical . . . No Solution.

When a case proves too difficult for the worlds most respected crime agencies: FBI, SURETE, CID - they turn to the team of DEPARTMENT S. Two men, one woman - 3 extraordinary agents. The orthodox is not for this department of Interpol.

Jason King (Peter Wyngarde): an eccentric novelist, a best selling writer of crime thrillers with a vivid imagination & flamboyant personality tewart Sullivan (Joel Fabiani): a determined man of action, who utilizes is brain as well as his fists nnabelle Hurst (Rosemary Nicols): a beautiful but meticulous computer expert with an eye for detail.

Each with their own distinct method of approaching an unsolvable & bizarre crime, the team of DEPARTMENT S proves that the most illogical of situation has a logical explanation.

Produced in 1968 by ITC (The Prisoner, The Saint), DEPARTMENT S was a departure from most other mystery programs. With its intriguing adventure & off beat stories, the series was a forerunner to contemporary programs like The X Files & Jonathan Creek which take the premise of an illogical occurrence, proceed to dissect each case, leading to a fascinating & rational conclusion. The series made an international star of its leading man (Peter Wyngarde), voted by Australian women in 1971 as the world's sexiest man, leading him to his own spin off series - JASON KING.
