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.
