We came across this series on Arts & Entertainment when we lived in the US in the 1980s (I don't think it aired in the UK). Once we had watched one episode we knew that we had to watch the rest of the series. The characters were realistic and the stories were well written. Each story was understated and provided a pleasant antidote to the more typical 'in your face' American series of the time. The series treated the audience as adults who didn't need to always be led by the hand through the plot. The lead character was Inspector Cameron, played admirably by Douglas Campbell. Inspector Cameron was a reader of characters and clues in the Sherlock Holmes tradition, but in a gentle Canadian way. The series still gives us a lot of fond memories 30 years later.
