Enemy at the Door (1978): S01E08 – Officers of the Law


Enemy at the Door is a British television drama series made by London Weekend Television for ITV.

The series was shown between 1978 and 1980 and dealt with the German occupation of Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands, during the Second World War.


Kluge is anxious to clamp down on the island’s black market activities and enlists the reluctant aid of local police sergeant Roy Lewis. There is a new drug called sulfanilamide which Dr. Martel believes will save the life of seriously ill youngster Bobby Beauchamp but he is denied its use by the Germans and so turns to black marketeer Louis Mendoza. The men are caught, thanks to Lewis, but the policeman is surprised that Kluge is more humane than he had thought.
