This comparative analysis of Hunter’s Walk (ITV, 1973–1976) in relation to The Sweeney (ITV, 1975–1978) explores in what manner each series was able to engage in debates surrounding class- and gender-inequality in light of second-wave feminism and the fracturing postwar settlement. The chapter inspects how each series negotiated a changing public and political attitude towards crime invested in a deterrence doctrine.
