Gideon’s Way

Gideon’s Way is a British television crime series made by ITC Entertainment and broadcast for ITV in 1964/65, based on the novels by John Creasey (as J. J. Marric). The series was made at Elstree studios in twin production with The Saint television series, which was also produced by Robert S. Baker. It stars John Gregson in the title role as Commander George Gideon of Scotland Yard, with Alexander Davion as his assistant, Detective Chief Inspector David Keen, Reginald Jessup as Det. Superintendent LeMaitre (nicknamed Lemmy), Ian Rossiter as Detective Chief Superintendent Joe Bell and Basil Dignam as Commissioner Scott-Marle. The show did not acknowledge any help from Scotland Yard, any other police force or adviser.

Daphne Anderson starred as Gideon’s wife, Kate; their three children were played by Giles Watling as young son, Malcolm, Richard James as older son, Matthew (who seemed to have a lot of new girlfriends), and Andrea Allan as daughter, Pru. Unusually for police stories, Gideon was shown as a family man at home though urgent phone calls from his bosses tend to disrupt family plans too often. However, he did admit in “State Visit” that his wife had walked out on him for a while years ago when he put the job first and her second. They live in an expensive detached house in Chelsea.
