Newhart is an American sitcom that aired on CBS from October 25, 1982 to May 21, 1990 with a total of 184 half-hour episodes spanning over eight seasons. The series stars Bob Newhart and Mary Frann as an author and his wife who own and operate an inn in a small, rural Vermont town that is home to many eccentric characters. TV Guide, TV Land, and A&E named the Newhart series finale as one of the most memorable in television history. Newhart was recorded on videotape for Season 1, with the remaining seasons shot on film. The theme music for Newhart was composed by Henry Mancini.

Bob Newhart plays Dick Loudon, an author of do-it-yourself and travel books. He and his wife Joanna move from New York City to a small town in rural Vermont to operate the 200-year-old Stratford Inn. Although the town’s name was never specified in the show, some media sources identified it as Norwich The outside shot of the house is the Waybury Inn in East Middlebury.

Dick is a sane, mild-mannered everyman surrounded by a community of oddballs in a town that exists in an illogical world governed by rules that elude him. Near the end of the second season, Dick began hosting a low-rated talk show on the town’s local television station. As the series progressed, episodes focused increasingly on Dick’s TV career and the quirky townsfolk.

This Episode

With Scudamore now in charge of the investigation into Eddie’s activities, the entire team are placed under suspicion, and it’s not long before surveillance capture pictures of Gerry getting cosy with Webster’s wife. Bill is convinced that Gerry is innocent, but Scudamore isn’t so sure. Meanwhile, Eddie is devastated to learn that Webster no longer requires his services and tries to track him down. Scudamore decides to pull in Eddie before he decides to skip the country, but Eddie is determined not to be arrested and makes a startling decision, which sends shock waves throughout the team. Gerry and Beverley head for Brussels to collect the illegal bullion, unaware that Scudamore is firmly on their tail. With Tommy and his associate lying in wait for delivery, Scudamore heads up a raid on both parties. Gerry denies all knowledge of any illegal cargo, and claims he was simply taking a day’s holiday away from prying eyes. Tommy’s associate is subsequently arrested, but Tommy manages to escape through a cluttered scrapyard, and out of sight of Bill and the team. Webster is arrested, but denies all knowledge of Gerry’s activities, and even claims he was unaware Gerry and his wife were having an affair.

The Knock is a British television crime drama, created by Anita Bronson and broadcast on ITV, which portrayed the activities of customs officers from the London City & South Collection Investigation Unit of HM Customs and Excise.[1] The series derived its name from the distinctive “Knock knock knock” command used over the radio to synchronise a raid.

Five series were broadcast from 10 April 1994, until 11 November 2000. The series had a rotating cast, with only a small number of cast members appearing throughout the series’ run. The only three cast members to appear in every series were Caroline Lee-Johnson, Trevor Byfield and Steve Toussaint. The series also adopted a number of different formats: while the early series interspersed various storylines and had running plots across the series; later series adopted a multi-part format resulting in two or three cases per series; while the final series adopted a stand-alone week by-week format.

The series was axed in 2001 following poor viewing figures for the final series. This was blamed on the loss of several main cast members, a change in the format and the overall look of the series which changed dramatically following an overhaul by ITV executives in 1999 MORE AT LINK
