A passenger jet arrives at Heathrow with no-one onboard. The population of an English village disappear overnight. A train arrives at the station with all its passengers dead.
Inexplicable . . . Illogical . . . No Solution.
When a case proves too difficult for the worlds most respected crime agencies: FBI, SURETE, CID – they turn to the team of DEPARTMENT S. Two men, one woman – three extraordinary agents. The orthodox is not for this department of Interpol.
Jason King (Peter Wyngarde): an eccentric novelist, a best selling writer of crime thrillers with a vivid imagination & flamboyant personality. Stewart Sullivan (Joel Fabiani): a determined man of action, who utilises is brain as well as his fists. Annabelle Hurst (Rosemary Nicols): a beautiful but meticulous computer expert with an eye for detail. Each with their own distinct method of approaching an unsolvable and bizarre crime, the team of DEPARTMENT S proves that the most illogical of situation has a logical explanation.
