Crime drama series. Ex WPC Anna Lee joins the Brierly Security private detective agency. Anna lived in an apartment block with former wrestler Selwyn who was trying his best to make a comeback. Apparently Liza Cody who created the character in her series of novels became disenchanted with writing further novels after this series was made.

There was a two hour pilot broadcast in 1992 called Anna Lee-Headcase and written by Andrew Davies. This, with the exception of Imogen Stubbs and Brian Glover, featured a different cast. Ken Stott played Bernie Schiller, David Harewood played Stevie, Michael Bryant played Cmdr Brierley and Barbara Leigh-Hunt played Beryl.
