Some great suggestions already and a few which I'd have gone with (very much from the late 70's - mid 80's action series era) but maybe on a slightly more classical note, and just a touch before my time - how about Van Der Valk. This being the slightly longer single release version, has a lovely ebb and flow to it.

Nice call on VdV. At school we had to sing the Lord's prayer to that tune so it holds mixed feelings for me...
Yoinked from Wikipedia:
The memorable signature tune, Eye Level, composed by Jack Trombey and played by the Simon Park Orchestra, reached number one in the UK singles charts in 1973. Also that year, Matt Monro charted with a vocal version titled "And you smiled!". The music originally appeared on the 1971 De Wolfe Music LP Double or Quits? (DWLP 3209).
In the final TV series, the theme was played at a slightly faster tempo than previously.

As an Evertonian it has to be Z-Cars! The tune is actually an old Sea Shanty called 'Johnny Todd'. I once heard a bootleg Bob Dylan version. The original Z cars was filmed in Kikby just outside Liverpool. It became Evertons theme in 1963. Also used by Sunderland for a while and Watford still use it? Still brings tears to my eyes..........
