Tecx (ITV Crime, Jenny Agutter, Rob Spendlove)

Published

on


Crime drama series Tecx dealt with the cases of a group of international detectives who were based in Brussels but roamed all over Europe. Their headquarters was Souverain Associates. Kate Milverton (Jenny Agutter) was in charge and much of the action centred around Chris Tierney (Rob Spendlove)

This was another of those pan european glossy cop shows that could have been an ITC show from the sixties like The Champions or Department S. Tecx has all but been forgotten these days and the show suffered somewhat at the time from a semi disjointed run of episodes with a two month gap from the schedules halfway through.

Lots of good guest stars popped up though including the likes of John Stride, Stephane Audran, John Castle, Geoffrey Bayldon, Abigail Cruttenden and a young Mark Strong.
