Boon was an easy-going, light-hearted U.K. drama about a prematurely-retired firefighter, KEN BOON, who becomes a sort of freelance troubleshooter, and later, an official private eye in the British Midlands.
Ken Boon and Harry Crawford have left their Birmingham base for pastures new in Nottingham
"Love Letters from a Dead Man"
gs: Patrick Field [ Ian ], Sheila Gish [ Barbara Lake ], Andy Mulligan [ Hughie Lennox ], Benny Young [ Sgt Hatchard ], Valentine Pelka [ Charlie Cochrane ], Michael Culver [ Greg Simpson ], Adrian Luty [ Hinshelwood ], John Dixon [ Soignier ], Richard Butler [ Ingram ], Annette Farrant [ Receptionist ], Brian James [ Reporter ], Philip Simmons [ Hotel Waiter ], Kim Durham [ Team Manager ]
As he is driving along a country lane towards Woodcote Park, Harry sees a racing cyclist being harassed by a souped-up car. The cyclist, Ian, turns out to be Helen's nephew. He is staying at Woodcote Park while he trains for a road-race through the centre of Nottingham. Greg Simpson, the manager of a racing team, is pressuring Ian to leave his present team and to join Greg's. He threatens to publish a letter which proves that Ian once conspired to fix the result of a race by letting a friend win. Harry investigates.
Ken is asked to trace the author of love letters written to Barbara Lake. They are apparently from her husband, Ronnie, a bank robber - but he died in a plane crash six months ago... Either he is still alive or else the letters are cruel forgeries.
Just as Laura is complaining that Ken never gives her anything interesting to do, a suave man called Charlie Cochrane turns up at the office, wanting someone to do some research into his family history. Laura is only too pleased to help. Charlie asks her out and send her red roses. She is clearly besotted with him.
