Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by Ted Wilde, the British detective series Sergeant Cork was set during the Victorian era. The title character, played by John Barrie, was a foresighted Scotland Yard gumshoe who delighted in using the "newest" forensic techniques to solve crimes. Naturally, Sgt. Cork fought an uphill battle with his superiors, notably the dour Superintendent Rodway (Charles Morgan). Telecast by ATV, Sergeant Cork was shown from 1963 to 1968, producing 65 50-minute episodes during that time span.
