Stump the King: The Beatles

The Fab FourI've gotten this question a few times, so I decided to ask you guys for help.

Ouchie Poos asks, "What tv detective type series used the beatles song "got to get you into my life" while running the end credits? The program had the same sort of setup as Department S but without the weird mysteries."

When I first got his question, I assumed that they were mistakenly talking about Life Goes On. However, I have received the same question since then and the only information I can find is that it may be a British TV show.

As for Department S, Wikipedia says it was anespionage/sci fi adventure series, which aired in 1969-70. The series starred Peter Wyngarde as Jason King, Joel Fabiani as Stewart Sullivan and Rosemary Nicols as Annabelle Hurst. The trio were agents for a fictional special department of Interpol.

While I've never seen the show, the description sounds like UPN's Special Unit 2.

So, maybe you fans in England can help me out with an answer to this one. Thanks in advance.

Now for this week's question...

What TV show used the Beatles song, "I've Just Seen a Face" as it's theme?

Congratulatins vdMee! Time of Your Life starring Jennifer Love Hewitt is the correct answer.
