This site is dedicated to the program Dempsey and Makepeace and its star couple, Harriet Makepeace & James Dempsey (played by Glynis Barber and Michael Brandon). An interesting piece of trivia – after meeting on the set of the show, the two co-stars eventually married in real-life (in 1989) and have a son.

The premise of this show was that a New York cop, Lt. James Dempsey, killed his partner, who was on the take, in self-defense. As part of his punishment, and to keep him safe, he was shipped off to London. There he becomes a member of the elite SI10 of Scotland Yard, partnering with Det. Sgt. Harriet Makepeace, who also happened to be Lady Harriet Makepeace (her father was an Earl).
