Synopsis:
Handling cases that are too baffling to be solved by normal police routine is all in a day's work for 'Department S' - a shadowy Interpol department that specialises in the inexplicable and the illogical. Its small core of operatives include flamboyant novelist Jason King (Peter Wyngarde), who uses his overactive imagination and droll wit to help solve the most difficult of cases, Stewart Sullivan (Joel Fabiani), a man of action who's not afraid to get his hands dirty, and Annabelle Hurst (Rosemary Nicols), the gorgeous computer expert with an eye for detail. In each episode the team solved the most convoluted and perplexing of cases with charm and humour.
