GIDEON'S WAY - Classic TV Shows



Gideons Way stars Britan's superb John Gregson. Jack Hawkins played Gideon in a very flaccid film directed by John Ford. As much as many loved Jack Hawkins, John Gregson is the definitive George Gideon. The series really does evoke England of the sixties and there is a multitude of famous names cropping up in this series.

Gideon's Way was a British TV crime series made in 1964/65, based on the novels by John Creasey (as J. J. Marric). The series starred Liverpudlian John Gregson in the title role as Commander George Gideon of Scotland Yard. The show did not acknowledge any help from Scotland Yard, any other police force or advisor.

Gideon was shown as a family man at home though urgent phone calls from his bosses tend to disrupt family plans too often. They live in an expensive detached house in Chelsea. There was extensive location shooting in early sixties London, with fast-paced action and strong story lines which made the series very popular in its day. The show was broadcast in the U.S. under the title Gideon CID.

Unlike many shows then and later, there was much location filming and the show gave an authentic view of London in 1964/65. In "The Rhyme and the Reason", there is a chase across a bomb site, an area of destruction left from WWII aerial bombing raids. A door key on a string which can be reached through a letter box indicating a more trusting society. Excellent quality for this rare series of hour long shows.
