This third collection of Dixon of Dock Green features the complete 22nd series of the much-loved policing drama, the last series ever made. Featuring some of the strongest writing in the series’ history, having been a fixture on TV screens since 1955, it drew to a close in the spring of 1976 with head held high, it’s badge of service untarnished. This final series finds Sgt. George Dixon (Jack Warner) operating from the back office as Collator for Dock Green, tracking, guiding and advising on events in the criminal underworld as they impacted on the otherwise peaceful ‘manor’ of Dock Green. Meanwhile on the front line, Detective Sgt. Alan Bruton (Richard Heffer), is ably supported by the likes of DC Len Clayton (Ben Howard), Sgt. Johnny Wills (Nicholas Donnelly), DS Mike Brewer (Gregory De Polnay) and PC Harry Dunne(Stephen Marsh) all of whom can be seen or heard in a unique collection of original interviews which are also featured on this release.
