The Gentle Touch
Jill Gascoine stars as Detective Inspector Maggie Forbes in this exciting and ground-breaking ITV police series from the 1980s.
Jill Gascoine stars a tough, no-nonsense female cop Maggie Forbes. Made at a time when there were very few ranking female officers in the police force, The Gentle Touch not only showed police procedure within a Metropolitan Police CID unit but also allowed an insight into how a woman might cope with such a role in what was very much a man’s world. Instantly successful with the public, The Gentle Touch ran for five years before spinning off into another series - C.A.T.S. Eyes.
Each episode is approximately 50 minutes.
