TV Barlow At Large (BBC-1 1971-1975, Stratford Johns, Neil Stacy) Published 3 years ago on August 20, 2016 After Z Cars and Softly Softly it was clearly felt there was still enough milage in the character of Detective Chief Superintendent Charlie Barlow for a series solely about him, hence Barlow At Large The first series, which consisted of one three part story, aired whilst Barlow was still part of the Softly Softly Task Force set. This case saw him seconded to the Home Office investigating a case of police corruption. The following year with the character having left Softly a full ten part series appeared. Barlow was now working in Whitehall as part of the Police Research Services Branch assisted by Detective Sergeant Rees. A regular thorn in his side would be civil servant A.G. Fenton. For the third season the title was shortened to the simpler Barlow and the cast now also featured Derek Newark as Detective Inspector Eddie Tucker. In 1973 Barlow joined forced with his Z Cars and Softly sidekick John Watt for a separate series looking at the Jack the Ripper case from Victorian times and in 1975 the pair also joined forces once more for a series called Second Verdict which looked at possible miscarriages of justice. There were also plans for yet another Barlow series which would have seen him investigating crime in Australia. This fell through mainly to scheduling conflicts for star Stratford Johns but series creator did novelise this concept in a book published in 1977. production details UK / BBC One / 29×50 minute episodes / Broadcast 15 September 1971 – 26 February 1975 Creators: Elwyn Jones, Troy Kennedy Martin / Theme Music: Bridget Fry / Producers: Leonard Lewis (series 1), Keith Williams (series 2-4) / Executive Producer: Leonard Lewis cast STRATFORD JOHNS as Det Ch Supt Charlie Barlow NEIL STACY as A.G.
