First shown in 1985, Edge of Darkness was a unique drama about a police inspector who tries to come to terms with his daughter's death, and ends up involved in an international conspiracy involving environmental terrorism, plutonium, and the Knights of St John.

Northmoor, the raid.Written by Troy Kennedy Martin, and directed by Martin Campbell, Edge of Darkness stars the late Bob Peck as Craven and Joe Don Baker as Jedburgh, the golf-obsessed American agent who may just be acting for a Higher Power.

The action shifts between Craven's cottage, the corridors of Whitehall, an underground nuclear reprocessing plant, and, in a surreal highlight, an abandoned nuclear bunker stocked by Harrods.

The episode we watched was "Northmoor", where Craven and Jedburgh break into the Nuclear Power station, the subject of an enquiry in Westminster.
