Plot summary: The series was set in a suburban police station in the East End of London and concerned uniformed police engaged with routine tasks and low-level crime. Unlike later police series, Dixon focused less on crime and policing and more on the family-like nature of life in the station (and at home) with Dixon, a warm, paternal and frequently moralising presence, being the central focus where crime was little more than petty larceny. Dixon lived in a small mid-terraced house on a busy road. He liked a drink, as did his police friends. - Wikipedia
