In this second collection, the Dock Green police force under the watchful eye of old timer Sergeant Dixon played by Jack Warner, come up against a mixed bag of villains, with one case playing out dangerously close to home.
Mercenaries on the streets of London lead to a dangerous shoot-out; an apparent suicide generates a cross-country manhunt; stolen jewels thrown into a squat provide an entry to a world of very dubious long-haired hippy spiritualism; a robbery witness brings the Dock Green police to a household where crime is a way of life; a desirable con-woman finds herself at the mercy of one of her victims; and - in a case of possible in-house corruption - 'no one likes a bent copper' as Dixon so aptly puts it.
One of the longest running police series on British television from 1955 to 1976, Dixon of Dock Green set the tone for television police drama and paved the way for all that would follow. Filmed on set and on location around the disappearing dockland of London's East End, the character of Dixon, famous for 'Evening all', was a mainstay of British television with its friendly, reliable world of coppers on the beat.

The film, "The Blue Lamp" formed the basis of this incredible series which ran for so many years and was loved by one and all. From the very young to the very old and, is still spoken of with reverence of being of a better time. The average person didn't swear in normal conversation. The criminals were nasty but didn't have sadistic streaks and the police were down to earth and helpful. They were respected for the job that they had to do and, they treated you with respect too. This is even more closer to me as The Blue Lamp was filmed at Paddington Police Station, alas no longer there as it was "Rebuilt" to make it more modern. As a young police officer, I had the privilege of serving at the old Paddington Police Station and The Blue Lamp was always shown during training, showing the way a police officer should conduct himself. Watching Dixon of Dock Green should be required viewing to all. To show them how things were and still should be. Life is all about respect and Dixon of Dock Green has that in spades. It was, and still is an incredible series and one that should be in everybodies collection. Hours of enjoyment.
