Three tough detectives are drafted into the police force of a northern city to infiltrate areas of crime where local officers might be recognised. Working at the sharp end of policing and not always finding favour with their superiors, those in the unit tackle everything from drug smuggling, kidnapping and gangland murder to major fraud and political corruption. Their work will eventually take them across the country, and each assignment is a baptism of fire for the Strangers...
An extraordinary success for ITV (five series over five years and a sequel), Strangers was a tough, quirky police series that was a breed apart from other cop shows of the time. With key shows written by celebrated scriptwriter Murray Smith (Lovejoy, Dempsey and Makepeace), Strangers provided another classic role for Don Henderson as the idiosyncratic D.S. Bulman, who was never to be seen without his trademark string gloves, Vicks inhaler and plastic bag; later series find Bulman and his team taking orders from Det. Chief Supt. Lambie, played by future Taggart star Mark McManus.
