Jack Warner stars as PC George Dixon. He appeared throughout the series long run. It had a little bit of everything from drama to comedy. The series wasn’t the usual shoot ’em up, car chase police series. It ambled along as crimes were solved.
September 1,1956 episode: “Father-In-Law” – It’s a big day in Dixon’s life. His daughter Mary is going to marry Detective Constable Andy Crawford. She brings in three girlfriends, two of whom will take part in the ceremony. Her friend Pam says she can’t because her fiancee was killed before their wedding. She’s afraid she would break down and destroy the ceremony.
Sgt.Grace Millard and Sgt.Flint check out the hall where the reception will be held. Grace says there’s something familiar about the woman who is checking coats. She can’t figure it out.
The ceremony is over and now it’s time to party. Dixon even invited Billy The Tramp who he’s known a long time. Billy likes his booze but is on his best behavior. Everything is going great but there’s a crisis in the cloak room.
Guest Frank Meek left his wallet in his overcoat because it was too stuffed with papers to carry in his suit. Now it’s missing. His first suspect is Billy and he wants him searched. Billy says no unless everyone else is also searched. Then Grace remembers where she’s seen the woman behind the coat counter. She’s been busted twice for shoplifting. Before she’s accused someone surprisingly confesses.
