Good evening everybody, yes it's the irrepressible Rowan Atkinson in another hit BBC TV Comedy The Thin Blue Line. This is the term used by the police to define their role in society - the barrier between social order and chaos. The Thin Blue Line is another collaboration between writer/producer Ben Elton and comedy actor Rowan Atkinson and with this winning partnership, responsible for many of the Black Adder episodes, the BBC have another hit comedy series in The Thin Blue Line.

The cast of The Thin Blue Line

The Thin Blue Line features a hapless collection of police enforcers who stretch the term to it's absolute limits - you can't get much thinner than this lot! Rowan Atkinson is superb as Inspector Raymond Fowler, ably supported by Serena Evans as Sgt. Patricia Dawkins (Sgt. Darling) both of whom have a thing for each other. The CID skeptic is played by David Haig as Detective Inspector Derek Grim (Grim by name, Grim by nature!) and the comedy is really turned up when ever Constable Kevin Goody a gay bobby played by James Dreyfus who is just superb in this role! (watch yer Curly Whirly!) Constable Habib (Mina Anwar), Constable Gladstone (Rudolph Walker) and Detective Constable Cray (Kevin Allen) make up the other principle cast members as other members of the force.

There have been two series so far of The Thin Blue Line each series being 7 episodes. The first episode of series one screened on 13th November 1995 and ran until 26th December 1995. The second series aired on 14th November 1996 and ran through to 23rd December 1996.
