A Comedy Thriller Set In 1976
When one of their own gets kidnapped there's a sense of jubilation at Scotland Yard.
Not what you might expect, but then the victim is Inspector Dover, and he's not quite the detective ENGLAND expects.
Dover is the victim of a kidnap gang called the Claret Tappers.
His partner Sergeant MacGregor has a brief interlude of joy as Scotland Yard refuse to pay the ransom.
The kidnap of a police officer is generally regarded as a highly serious matter.
When the victim is Inspector Dover, however, the mood at Scotland Yard is one of jubilation.
