While sprouting from tot-to-teen during the seventies, I was a terror for TV Detectives - both the US variety covered (here), and the Brit-Cop shows that employed an almost off-the-peg parade of villainy..
Rough stuff street toughs
Hi-Tech International Terrorism
Corrupt Senior Civil Servants
Crooked Aristocrats in country houses and/or golf clubs (usually Stoke Park - a Goldfinger location)
I've still got my pick 'n 'mix library of original crimebusting Annuals stored in the loft, collecting together - The Persuaders,The Protectors,The Professionals, The Sweeney (surely The Sweeney were a bit too rough and ready for an Annual readers catchment audience) and The New Avengers..
Laurie Johnson's New Avengers (a flared and swishy refit of his sixties original), is surely the template tune for almost every Acid Jazz track, and gets worked over here by Southend's very own Snowboy...
Snowboy - The New Avengers Theme
Another Laurie Johnson anthem, and perhaps the greatest car-crashing-glass-smashing action theme ever.. - shouldn't Lewis Collins really have been the follow-on-Bond from Roger Moore?
Finally, can you decode this mystery title tune - and work out which show it's from??
The inner spread of The New Avengers Transfer set seems to be based on Heatherden Hall, part of the Pinewood Film Studios - which appears in The New Avengers, The Professionals, The Persuaders, UFO and Space 1999
