30) The Gentle Touch (1980)
Inspector Maggie Forbes is a hard-nosed no-nonsense lady-cop who climbed up the ladder of the police force at the Seven Dials station in London. Maggie is left to juggle the responsibilities of her career and her life as a newly-single mother when her husband, a police constable, painfully killed in the very first episode.
After this series the character of Maggie Forbes returned in the faster-paced series ‘C.A.T.S. Eyes’ (also created by Terence Feely) about an entire team of lady-detectives who covertly work for the Home Office from Kent.
