Thread: Dempsey and Makepeace

  1. Default Dempsey and Makepeace

    Dempsey and Makepeace launched on London Weekend Television in 1985 bringing some sizzling sexual tension to cold Friday evenings. It starred Michael Brandon as tough US cop Lieutenant Jim Dempsey and Glynis Barber as aristocratic Detective Sergeant Harriet “Harry” Makepeace. Dempsey is sent to London for his own protection and the two become, reluctant, partners at Scotland Yard. Sparks fly from the outset as the will-they-won’t-they theme plays out against a background of classic, British, police drama. Dempsey and Makepeace ran for three series – ending when Dempsey is nearly killed and Makepeace admits that she loves him. Michael Brandon and Glynis Barber married in real life and are still together. Brandon recently starred in the original production of the Jerry Springer Opera.

    Glynis Barber always worth watching!

    Unless I'm getting mixed up with the Professionals or something, I recall an episode where they listen in on someone dialling a number on a rotary phone and were able to get the number called by the length of the turn of the dial for each digit.

    You don't see THAT in modern cop dramas!
