The television series Sergeant Cork has an audience of mil­lions. Now his cases and adven­tures are adapted to narrative form by a writer who himself created some of the original  scripts.
Here is ‘Corky’ at his brilliant best: shrewd, sagacious, uncon­ventional — a man ahead of his time, a liberal in an illiberal age —a man both loved and feared in the London lit by gaslight.
