UK / BBC One / 27×30 minute episodes / Broadcast 1977 – 1981

Writer: Roy Clarke / Theme Music: Paul Greenwood / Producers: Douglas Argent, Bernard Thompson

Sitcom. Cases of naive young police constable Michael Penrose with a possessive girlfriend and a strange family.

The show started off as The Growing Pains of PC Penrose with Rosie working away from his home town, but shortened to Rosie when PC Penrose returned home. Star Greenwood did a great job on the theme tune too.
