Between the Lines (1992–1994) is set in the Complaints Investigation Bureau (CIB) - the department responsible for investigating other police officers - of London's Metropolitan Police. The first two series had stories based around various different aspects of the darker side of the police, ranging from such topics as petty corruption, racism and sexual harassment through to grand conspiracy, with some plot threads running through the series over several episodes. The series also dealt with the personal lives of it's less-than-clean-cut characters, particularly the womanising lead character Tony Clark, and is also notable for its inclusion of a lesbian character in a major role. In the third and final series, the focus changed significantly, moving away from the police force to other areas of security and espionage.
The final episode of the show with Naylor and Clark infiltrating a far right group. The finale ends on a cliffhanger with an aghast Maureen regretting her decision to offer up her two former colleagues in return for a promotion in the police force, as Clark and Naylor appear to be trapped on an exploding boat. It is never known whether they survived.
