The main character plays Jaroslav Plesl. Does its chief inspector, Hynek Budík, have a real model?
“He’s a fictional character, he has no real prototype. The same is true of his family background, which is the work of the co-author of the theme, Jan Otčenášek. Nevertheless, I hid a reference to the famous detective in his names. “
“After the establishment of the Czechoslovak state, the very capable Zdeněk Bubník, a journalist by profession, served as a detective of the Prague Police Headquarters. In 1969, his book Detective of Memories was published, which contains a lot of interesting information. For example, how did the Prague state police relate to the gendarmerie. And so I came from his names and Bubník is an Alarm Clock. By the way, he was also a model of Detective Klubíček by Emily Vachka. “
And what about his colleagues played by Jiří Langmajera and Denis Šafařík?
“I made it up completely. It was necessary for him to have one experienced colleague with him, to be completely different. So it is beautifully complemented by Inspector Havlík (J. Langmajer), who uses his confidant networks recruiting mostly from women who know all professional criminals. And I supplemented their tandem with a beginner who will achieve new and new procedures and ways of thinking in the work of the team. “
“It is so. The Prague Police Headquarters was headed by the Police President, but according to him, the serial figure is not processed. As well as with the police council, who was in charge of performing the police service in Greater Prague. In fact, he led not only detectives in inner and Greater Prague, but also uniformed police officers serving both at individual district police commissaries and at police guards scattered throughout Greater Prague. “
Do you want the two heads of inner and outer Greater Prague to work side by side? In the series we see that the two performed by Jaroslav Plesl and Ondřej Small they didn’t get along very well.
“This is also our creative license. In fact, the organizational structure was different. But we found it interesting to contrast two strong figures – a legionnaire and an inspector from the time of the monarchy. And so we made it up. “
